During the 3D scanning project of the Apollo 11 Command Module, museum staff uncovered writing on the interior walls of the module. These notes illustrate improvisation during the mission and modification of pre-flight plans for what items were to be placed in each locker. The reasons suggest something about what life was like on the way to the moon and back.
