This scale model of Skylab, a United States space station, was gifted to the Esperance Museum in appreciation for assistance given to NASA. Skylab was launched into space on 13 May 1973 and re-entered the atmosphere on 12 July 1979. It scattered debris across a sparsely populated area between Rawlinna and Esperance, Western Australia. Perhaps this Skylab model was in lieu of the $400 fine the Shire of Esperance issued to NASA for littering! Be sure to check out all the other interesting Skylab items and memorabilia.
