Luna Probe Sphere at the Eisenhower Memorial Library

A pennant sphere of the type used on the USSR's Luna 2 probe. Given to President Eisenhower as a "gift" by Soviet Union Premier Khrushchev. There is another one at the Cosmosphere, making the only two of these wonderfully rare artifacts (that I know of) in Kansas.
