Radiation Survey Meter
This device allowed the Apollo 11 astronauts to determine the radiation in the crew compartment. It was fully portable, self-contained, and provided a direct reading of radiation dose rates. In the event of a radiation emergency (such as a solar flare) it could be used to find a habitable, low-dose region within the spacecraft.
Personal Radiation Dosimeter
Each astronaut possessed a personal radiation dosimeter to monitor the cumulative radiation dose received during the mission. The two shown here were used on the flight of Apollo 11.
