Now that the cold war is over, let's relax a little and celebrate humanity's space travel achievements with this charming 1:10 replica. Beeps optional.

This looks like a model of the Sputnik rocket, rather than the orbiter [hippo, Jul 01 2002]

       Go for the Mir version. One that doesn't need taken down, it just decays and eventually falls to earth.

       Cool. I know people who would go for a whole set of space and astronomy ornaments. They wouldn't both waiting for a tree, though.   

       Actually, the already-popular rounded ornaments that have a concavity on one side resemble a Vostok/Voskhod with the hatch blown.

       Several series of Hallmark Anglo-American-oriented space ornaments already exist -- for example, Star Wars, Star Trek, and NASA (including Apollo 11 moon buggy and astronaut) -- but so far no Long March booster (though the ornaments are made in China) and no festive red-star-adorned USSR capsules. (Oh, wait, the red star didn't mean Christmas, did it...? Never mind...).

       Spy satellites to watch over the Christmas presents under the tree would be good too. (How coincidental... I was going to post "Spy Baubles" as a new idea later this week, but this is as good a place to leave it) [+]

       The Sputnik ornament should circle the base, while a moon with LEM sits atop the tree.   

       Who said the Cold War is over?
