This emergency medical kit was stowed in the Lunar Module on the Apollo 11 mission when it landed on the moon in July 1969. In addition to minor first-aid supplies (bandages, eyedrops), the kit contained pills and six capsules: four pain killers (Darvon), four stimulant pills (Dexedrine), aspirin, and pills to treat diarrhea. Missing are decongestant pills, a syringe with Demoral, nose drops, and an antibiotic ointment. The kit was located in the left-hand midsection, readily accessible to both astronauts.
