    I need a few more details before putting in my bid. Most importantly, I need to know its exact dimensions - I'm thinking of turning it into a nice little cocktail cabinet for my flat.

    ....it would make a modernistic art piece as a cocktail cabinet....big_smile
    "The capsule's spherical cabin, no more than 2.5 metres (8 feet) in diameter and made of aluminium alloy, "

    ....and for a cool 2 to 10 million,,it's a steal!
