RIP Capt. Alan Bean, Apollo 12 Astronaut & Artist, 4th Moonwalker [4438×4633]

RIP CAPTAIN ALAN BEAN

After Apollo 16′s John Young (1930-January 5 2018), an other moonwalker, Alan Bean (1928-May 26 2018), left us.  In total, 12 men walked on the moon, all during six Apollo missions between July 1969 and December 1972.  Only four are still living : Apollo 17′s Harrison “Jack” Schmitt, Apollo 11’s Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 15’s David Scott and Apollo 16’s Charles Duke.  (source: this 2017 article and updates from wikipedia).

Record-breaking NASA astronaut Alan Bean dead at 86:

Rest in peace, Alan Bean.

Of the twelve men who walked on the Moon, only four now remain alive, all in their eighties. 

Next year will be the 50th anniversary of the first manned Moon landing. In 1953, the year of the 50th anniversary of the Wright Brothers’ first controlled, sustained, heavier-than-air flight, commercial airliners carried 50 million passengers. 

It’s shocking to think we managed to put people on the surface of another world half a century ago. And it’s even more shocking to consider how quickly and completely we, as a species, abandoned the endeavor.
