In handwritten notes on the cover sheet, a company reviewer criticized the absence of a restraint belt and a table, and didn’t approve of the bump hat. The bump hat was a recurring feature in most of Jacobe's scenes of intravehicular life, presumably because he was directed to include it. It appeared in other artists' concepts of spacecraft from several contractors in the early to mid-1960s, before American astronauts had experience with spacecraft interiors large enough to float freely in. The widely-shared concern was, apparently, the risk of head injury during weightless maneuvers. In practice, the astronauts never wore such safety gear and never seemed to suffer for it.
