Items Carried in Space

Curious about what astronauts take with them, or items that have been left in space? Find that here!

Astronauts were not required to keep a detailed packing list until 1972. We have no way to definitively prove what early astronauts may have carried.

These collections are not meant to be exhaustive; they are meant to get researchers started in the right direction. Further, only content specific to the topic, and created or sponsored by NASA is included in these pages. Content that spans topics, such as books that cover the entirety of Apollo, is included elsewhere in the site.
