From early innovators to Nobel Prize winners, from scientists and physicists to mathematicians and physicians, we’re presenting some of the most legendary inventors and innovators in history. And of course, many of these disciplines and incredible minds collaborated to achieve man’s exciting journey into space exploration.

Past Science & Technology special sections have included personal correspondence, signed documents, photos and more, from A (Ampere) to Z (von Zeppelin). Some examples of prices achieved:

  • Letter written by Sir Isaac Newton in 1721: $53,806
  • Moonwalker Dave Scott’s Apollo 15 lunar surface-used drill chuck and his Rover “Bearing Map”: both sold for $49,000 each
  • Binder of scientific and experimental notes by Nobel Prize-winning physicist William Shockley: $12,000

Our next Science & Technology auction will be December 5, 2018. Do you have items that capture the genius and innovation of man and machine? Contact us.
