N.B. The magnometer and Conrad's shadow are in the foreground. "That is the Moon exploration. You're trying to plant these little experiments, which, at the time, you don't care whether they're seismometers, magnetometers, solar winds; you just have to put that particular device level and pointed north or something like that,' said Bean. 'And so you're really not doing anything so, more than, like, housekeeping, almost' (Chaikin, Voices, p. 77). The NASA negative number is AS12-47-6919.
