The control and display panel is arguably one of the most important parts of the Lunar Module, as it enables the astronauts to monitor and manage the Lunar Module subsystems and to control the vehicle manually during separation, docking, and landing. Centered and canted between the flight stations, it housed controls and displays related to flight control, main propulsion, and engine thrust control, as well as warning lights.
