Description:

Pete Conrad (American, 1930-1999)
Alan Bean and the Lunar Module Intrepid, EVA 1, Apollo 12, November 1969. Numbered 'NASA AS12-46-6787' (NASA MSC) in red on the recto u.l. margin. Vintage chromogenic print on fiber-based Kodak paper with 'A Kodak Paper' watermark on the verso, image size 7 1/4 x 7 in. (18.3 x 17.5 cm), unmatted.
Condition: Good.

N.B. 'The Lunar Module seemed much larger sitting on the Moon than I had imagined,' recalled Bean. 'All alone, it seemed like a house, with Pete and I working and playing all around it. When I think about it now, it was the only 'house' for 239,000 miles" (Constantine, p. 37).
Estimate $400-600
