JUPITER-2 NEWSPAPER DISPLAY
On October 16, 1997, the interstellar spacecraft "Jupiter-2"
lifted off on an adventure to the stars. Shortly after
launch, the extra weight of stowaway and saboteur, Zachary
Smith, carried the ship into the path of a swarm of meteors
and only a few hours later, thanks to the tampering of the
good doctor, the Robot went berserk and sent the ship into an
uncontrolled hyper-drive. When control of the craft was
finally restored, the ship, it's crew and family were
hopelessly "Lost in Space".
This partial front page newspaper prop comemorates the events
of that fateful day that was the premise of Irwin Allen's
timeless classic TV show. You know it! You love it! And no
where else will you find anything as authentic looking. No
where else can you find an item that both celebrates and
validates "Lost in Space" in quite such a unique fashion.

stories will lead only to frustration. But there's enough
right here to create an authentic appearence and an entertaining
This fan-made prop is truely a unique item that you will find no
