In Flight - Astronauts By Alan Bean

By Alan Bean

In Flight - Astronauts by Alan Bean

As Apollo XIV astronauts Alan Shepard and Edgar Mitchell were winding up their second moonwalk, Al turned toward the television camera. “Houston,” he said, “you might recognize what I have in my right hand as the handle for the Contingency Return Sample. It just so happens to have a genuine six iron attached to the end. In my left hand, I have two little white pellets that are familiar to millions of Americans.” He then dropped one ball to the moon’s surface.

Al faced the ball and started a modified back swing. The Apollo space suit made smooth arm and hand motion impossible and Al just topped the ball. It rolled into a small crater a few yards away. Ed Mitchell observed, “Hey, you got more dirt than ball that time.”

As the whole world watched on television, Al dropped the second ball. “Well, here we go again,” he said and took his best swing. Dirt and dust flew, the ball disappeared and Al exclaimed, “Miles and miles and miles!”

Counter-signers: Apollo astronauts Alan Shepard, Edgar Mitchell and Stuart Roosa.
