Hello, collectors and knowledgeable people,

I work at a museum and we are currently hosting an exhibit about the space race from the 1950s to 2003/present and we are looking to add to exhibit with various items that the average person might have in their dwelling. Currently we have an original Rubik's Cube that I have loaned (this covers the 1979/kind of 1980s room) but I am specifically looking for puzzles that were marketed using the space race (I recall seeing a Magic Octahedron that was marketed this way), especially if you have one that I could buy or borrow (information and examples are appreciated as well).

Also, I would be specifically interested in Space Race puzzles made in 1979 or 1997, or any puzzles made during those years.

Just going to bump this, please remember that even if you don't have a puzzle to sell/loan, I am still looking for examples of various puzzles that were marketed using the Space Race and space exploration (astronauts, etc) as a promotional tool (even on the packaging).
