Columbia will make these details and many others previously unseen by museum visitors available. online for the first time, These markings give a glimpse into the first mission to land on the moon crewed by Neil Armstrong. Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins Some of the markings include numbers and calculations relayed from. mission control which are written on the wall near the navigational tools There also appears to be a. calendar written by one of the astronauts with each day crossed out except for landing day Observing. such details and studying the text have enabled curators to enhance their understanding and compile. a more complete account of how the missions were piloted Research is being conducted to determine. what the markings were for which astronauts made them and what insights they provide about the. historic trip that occurred from July 16 through 24 1969.
