This undated photo, provided by Sotheby's in New York, shows the Vostok 3KA-2 space capsule, flown by mannequin cosmonaut Ivan Ivanovich on March 25, 1961--the final test mission prior to Yury Gagarin's first space flight. The capsule, the only Vostok space capsule outside of Russia and the only one in private hands, is scheduled to be offered at auction by Sotheby's on April 12, 2011, the 50th anniversary of Gagarin's flight.
