Soviet space artifacts to be on display in Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A Soviet lunar rover and a replica of a Soviet lunar probe are going on display at the National Space Foundation's headquarters in Colorado Springs.

The foundation said Wednesday a prototype of a Soviet space suit will also be on display.

The items are on loan from the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center in Hutchinson, Kan. The center has a large collection of artifacts from the space programs of the United States and the former Soviet Union.

The Space Foundation will have the items for three years. They will first be displayed in its lobby and later will be moved to a gallery as part of the first phase of the foundation's planned visitors center.
