The awesome story of how the Nostromo prop from Alien was rescued
Dec 14, 2012

The guys at the Prop Store of London know that the stories behind sci-fi props can sometimes be as fascinating as the props themselves. That's why they'll be popping up on Blastr from time to time, taking a look at the untold stories of some amazing objects from movies and TV—such as the Nostromo spaceship from Alien, which was left under a tarp on a driveway for two decades until it was rescued and restored. It's impossible to say where modern sci-fi might be without Ridley Scott's Alien. At the center of the seminal 1979 film was not only the psycho-sexual design of H. R. Giger, but also the space tug upon which ninety percent of the film took place: The Nostromo.
