Lunar Hi Five
by Alan Bean
"After a good night's rest and donning our space suits, Pete Conrad and I checked all systems in the lunar module. Precise burns with our descent engine followed. The final maneuver was a powered descent from our orbital speed of 6,000 miles an hour to zero at touchdown on the Ocean of Storms. All critical systems had worked as predicted. We were on the Moon.
Being on the Ocean of Storms was not luck, but a result of careful and dedicated work by thousands or engineers and scientists back on planet Earth. We were so happy and excited about getting ready to do the productive work we had trained long and hard to do, that a high-five would have felt just right."--ALAN BEAN
This was a private edition produced by the Greenwich Workshop in 2004 as a fundraiser for the Alan Bean Planetarium in CT. Not many collectors know about it. We're the only ones marketing it.
