FLOWN SOYUZ-3 SPACE NAVIGATION INDICATOR
Инк-2с Глобус [INK-2S Globus], flown space navigation indicator with unflown on-ground transformer.
Approx 5 inch in diameter rotating terrestrial metal globe with printed paper gores, housed in a 7 x 11 inch casing of machined aluminum alloy and protected by a hemispheric clear plastic globe with cross-shaped sight. With orbit counter, control and calibration switches, digital gauges, and latitude and longitude gauges. With unflown clear plexiglass sided 9 x 16 inch ground transformer unit, unit framed in aluminum alloy with peg and multi-pin connecting cable.
PROVENANCE: Cosmonaut Georgy T. Beregovoy; Sotheby's Russian Space History, 1996, lot 145.

FLOWN SOYUZ-3 SPACE NAVIGATION INDICATOR, removed from the Soyuz-3 spacecraft by Cosmonaut Beregovoy after his day-long flight. Intended to dock in space with the orbiting Soyuz-2, the mission, which launched on October 26, 1968, failed after several complications. Beregovoy built the accompanying ground transformer to power up the unit. Essentially a mechanical computer, the space navigation indicator displayed the nadir of the spacecraft on a rotating terrestrial globe, indicating the spacecraft's location relative to Earth coordinates. It was also used to calculate day and night while in orbit, to plot landing coordinates, and to calculate open windows for communication.
