Sign by Apollo 14. It reads:


Apollo 14: Kitty Hawk

You are standing beside the actual Command Module piloted to the Moon by astronauts Alan Shepard, Edgar Mitchell, and Stuart Roosa and the Apollo 14 missions (January 31-Feburary 9, 1971). Kitty Hawk and Roosa remained in lunar orbit while Shepard and Mitchell descended to the Moon in the Lunar Module Antares. The Lunar Module docked to Kitty Hawk's nose; the heatshield on the ship's blunt base protected the crew during atmosphere reentry.

Fifteen astronaut crews rode Apollo Command Modules into space - nine times to the Moon, the rest to Earth orbit. They were:
