Astronaut Alan Bean, the fourth man to walk on the Moon who later turned to painting, died Saturday. He was 86.
Bean, a native of Wheeler, Texas, was a member of the Apollo 12 mission in November 1969, traveling to the moon alongside Pete Conrad and Richard Gordon.
I think there are only 5 (?) left of the original 12 moonwalkers.
Walking on the moon becomes nostalgia from the past. Nothing like it before or since.
I fear that in a decade or so, the world will be like it was in early 1969, with no one on the planet who'd ever walked on another orb.
