Detailed Poster Shows Everything Taken on Apollo 11

Rebecca OConnell

July 20 marks the 47th anniversary of the moon landing, so what better way to celebrate than with an Apollo 11-themed poster? Inspired by a trip to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, Rob Loukotka created a detailed 18-inch by 24-inch poster featuring items taken aboard Apollo 11. Thanks to the extensive recordkeeping at NASA, Loukotka—known for his past campaign for an ACME product poster—was able to find out every single item taken aboard the spacecraft. He then fit over 200 items onto the poster, categorizing similar items into 69 detailed illustrations. The pictured inventory includes dehydrated foods, maintenance kits, extravehicular suits, lunar tools, and much more.

You can get your hands on one of these space-inspired posters on Fringe Focus, where you can also check out more of Loukotka's creative work.
