LIMITED EDITION PRINTS
Red, White and Blue
by Alan Bean
The space program truly represents what is great with America. When I was an astronaut I felt each day that I had accepted a responsibility to do the right thing professionally in everything that I did. I was not alone in this as I saw this "right stuff" code everywhere. It was a good feeling to know that all those around me were dedicated to making our nation's space exploration effort as good as it could possibly be. This red, white and blue feeling and theme carried over into everything we did.
Everyday I feel fortunate to have been part of our nation's space exploration programs. I have noticed that all of us who worked and contributed to space exploration feel pretty much the same. If we astronauts, engineers, scientists, flight controllers, trainers, senior, middle, and junior managers, everyone at NASA and at our contractors cut ourselves I believe we would all bleed red, white and blue.
