Mercury Control Panel Indicator
  • Mercury spacecraft control panel status indicator shell, labeled “O2 EMER” for oxygen emergency.
  • Consists of an aluminum shell mounting a translucent plastic window with engraved label. Two lights mounted on the panel behind the indicator window would illuminate amber when emergency oxygen flow to the suit was activated.
  • Appears to be identical to the flight indicator design.
  • Photo of Friendship 7 control panel shows column of status indicators, with this type of indicator third from the top.
