Description:

Pete Conrad (American, 1930-1999)
Two views of Alan Bean unpacking equipment from the Lunar Module Intrepid, EVA 1, Apollo 12, November 1969. Numbered 'NASA AS12-46-6789' and 'NASA AS12-46-6791' (NASA MSC), respectively, in red on the recto u.l. margin. Vintage chromogenic prints on fiber-based Kodak paper with 'A Kodak Paper' watermark on the verso, image sizes to 7 1/4 x 7 in. (18.3 x 17.5 cm), unmatted.
Condition: Minor wear to several corners of sheet.

N.B. The astronauts had to remove the Apollo Lunar Scientific Equipment Package (ALSEP) from the stowage areas on the descent stage of the LM. It was in two sub-packages that were folded up or collapsed for more compact storage (http://www.lpi.usra.edu/lunar/missions/apollo/apollo_12/surface_opp/). The deployment of the ALSEP was one of the major tasks of the first EVA period; it was deployed on every lunar landing mission.
Estimate $600-800
