Alan Bean...4th man to walk on the moon has passed away. Met him at the 25th anniversary of the moon landing at Houston. Went with my dad...he worked the Lunar Module for Apollo's 9, 10 and 11. Got his autograph at that celebration. 50th anniversary is so close...wish those guys could still be around for that anniversary. My dad passed 6 years ago. I'm sure Pete Conrad welcomed Alan with a big smile, a handshake and a cold beer. Apollo 12 was hit by lightning on launch and lost everything. They remained the cool test pilots they were and the controller on the ground at Houston came across the radio..."SCE TO AUX"...crew reset to AUX....the Saturn V came back to life and the rest is history.
