CNET News' Rafe Needleman visited venture capitalist Steve Jurvetson, managing director of Draper Fisher Jurvetson, to photograph his Apollo-themed hardware collection.
Venture capitalist Steve Jurvetson, managing director of Draper Fisher Jurvetson, has a thing for space. When he's not investing in startups like SpaceX and Tesla, he indulges this hobby. About two years ago, he began acquiring artifacts from the Apollo program.
Congratulations Steve (cS: Jurvetson) on the impressive collection and exposure!

Steve has many great items. Even better, he likes to share them and is very friendly, very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic.

I gotta' say, I particularly like the "Cobra head". There's something very sexy about it.

Congratulations, Steve! And a nice display of your collection. (So is the laser printer flown too? )
