EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the awe-inspiring moment when Astronaut Alan Bean set foot on the Moon during the Apollo 12 moon landings. In this historic image, Bean can be seen holding equipment for experiments, showcasing humanity's thirst for knowledge and exploration. Apollo 12, the second manned mission to reach our celestial neighbor, touched down in the Ocean of Storms on November 19th, 1969. Alongside his fellow astronaut Charles Conrad, Bean embarked on two excursions onto the lunar surface totaling an impressive 7 hours and 45 minutes. Their mission included retrieving parts from Surveyor 3, a robot left behind two and a half years prior. In their quest to unravel the mysteries of our lunar companion, these brave pioneers utilized seismometers to delve into its seismology. This groundbreaking research aimed to deepen our understanding of Earth's natural satellite like never before. The photograph encapsulates not only a pivotal moment in space exploration but also serves as a testament to human ingenuity and determination. Alan Bean's presence amidst this desolate yet enchanting landscape symbolizes mankind's relentless pursuit of discovery beyond our earthly boundaries. As we gaze upon this remarkable image captured by Science Photo Library, we are reminded of how far we have come in unraveling the secrets held by that distant celestial body known as the Moon.
