NASA astronaut Alan Bean made his first flight into space aboard Apollo 12, the second manned mission to land on the Moon, a historical moment that contribution to his later reception of the 1975 Dr. Robert H. Goddard Memorial Trophy, the 1975 AIAA Octave Chanute Award, and the 1975 AAS Flight Achievement Award. Apollo: An Eyewitness Account recounts Bean's experiences. "There has been nothing quite like this book before, and as the astronauts of the early space program pass on, there will be fewer. Fortunately, NASA sent an artist to the moon early on, though, at the time, it didn't know it" (Roland Green).
