BERLIN, GERMANY - A Vozvrashchayemyi Apparat (VA) former Soviet space capsule was displayed during a press preview Thursday before its auction.

The capsule, which could carry three astronauts, served on two Cosmos space missions in the late 1970s.

The space capsule, which is reportedly estimated at $1 million-to-$2 million, will be auctioned May 7 in Brussels along with two spacesuits, worth up to an estimated $100,000.
