Anche Alan Bean se ne è andato ...


Alan Bean walked on the moon on Apollo 12, commanded the second Skylab crew and then resigned after 18 years as an astronaut to paint the remarkable worlds and sights he had seen.
Bean was lunar module pilot on the November 1969 Apollo 12 mission, the second moon landing.
He and mission commander Pete Conrad explored on the lunar Ocean of Storms and set up several experiments powered by a small nuclear generator.
“As all great explorers are, Alan was a boundary pusher," NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said in a statement.
"Rather than accepting the limits of technology, science, and even imagination, he sought to advance those lines - in all his life’s endeavors.

Alan Bean fu anche un provetto pittore ...
Dal sito della NASA ...

His decision to retire from NASA to devote full time to painting was, he said, based on his 18 years as an astronaut, during which he visited places and saw things no artist’s eye had ever seen firsthand.
He said he hoped to capture those experiences through his art.
He followed that dream for many years at his home studio in Houston, with considerable success.
His paintings were particularly popular among space enthusiasts.
