RIP Moonwalker Alan Bean who sadly passed away yesterday, May 26th 2018.
Alan Bean was the first astronaut I ever met. The most warm, personable and the funniest. I remember him talking about his experiences on the moon, his wife Leslie, his two dogs ET and Moonbeam and how he wanted to play a joke on scientists by pretending to have found an arrowhead on the moon! Then played a joke on the audience when he left the room with his microphone on! Rest in peace, it was a pleasure to meet you.
The original post below is a condensed version of the meet and talk I attended.
