I wish! This came to Schenectady with the lunar touch sample. It is a static display with the back open so you could climb in and have a photo taken. My wife knew I couldn't resist. I love the idea of flying in space. I spent 5 nights on a nuclear submarine with small racks (beds) no privacy and equipment sticking out into every inch of living space. Loved it. I think I could do a 6 month tour on the space station, easy. The old Mir, maybe not so easily but I'd still have gone. Skylab, oh yeah! Yes, I love the idea of being an astronaut.
As for the suit, well it's not a Shuttle EVA suit, and it's not an Apollo EVA suit and it's not a Russian EVA suit, but if you look only at the top half you can imagine you're in a current suit! I am such a geek! Actually, a few years ago I have the privilege of meeting a NASA space suit designer named Amy Ross. Who got into the space business through the influence of her dad, NASA astronaut Jerry Ross. I got to put my hand in one of the gloves she worked on - oh how cool! She came to the Schenectady Museum too.
