Savoring the Moment

Apollo 17’s Jack Schmitt takes a moment to let the significance of his lunar exploration sink in. He knows this spot hasn’t changed much over the last three billion years. Now there are signs of visitors from another place: footprints, part of a spaceship, an abandoned car, a flag. Jack contemplates how these traces will remain just as they are for at least the next three billion years or so.

Apollo astronaut and artist, Alan Bean, fourth man to walk on the moon, had a full career at NASA. When he retired in 1981 he knew that if any credible artistic impressions were to remain of the start of the space program for future generations, he needed to start painting them. “My decision to resign from NASA was based on the fact that I am fortunate enough to have seen sights no other artist ever has,” Bean said, “and I hope to communicate these experiences through art.”
