Alan Bean takes us behind the scenes of Conrad, Gordon and Bean – The Fantasy. In this stunningly framed print, “Pete Conrad, Dick Gordon and I were assigned to make one of the first moon landings. The most experienced astronaut was designated commander, in charge of all aspects of the mission, including flying the lunar module. Prudent thinking suggested that the next-most-experienced crew member be assigned to take care of the command module, since it was our only way back home. Pete Conrad had flown two Gemini flights, the second with Dick Gordon as his crewmate. This left the least experienced – me – to accompany the commander on the lunar surface.”
Countersigners: astronauts Charles Conrad, Jr. and Richard F. Gordon, Jr.
