Background of the Astronaut Painter

Astronaut Alan Bean was the fourth human being to walk on the moon. He was also an accomplished painter, and his work combines his love of space exploration with his talent for art.

Bean was born in 1932 in Wheeler, Texas. He became interested in astronomy at a young age, and he dreamed of becoming an astronaut. After graduating from high school, he attended the University of Texas at Austin, where he studied aeronautical engineering.

In 1963, Bean was selected as one of the third group of astronauts by NASA. He completed his first space flight in 1969 as the pilot of Apollo 12, the second manned mission to land on the moon. He later served as commander of Skylab 3, the first long-duration mission to the orbiting laboratory, and he commanded the second and final flight of Space Shuttle Challenger in 1983.

Bean retired from NASA in 1986 to focus on painting full-time. His paintings are inspired by his experiences in space, and they often include images of spacecraft or planets. In addition to his paintings, Bean has also created sculptures and worked on a variety of other art projects.

Alan Bean passed away on May 26, 2018 at the age of 86. His legacy as an artist continues to inspire others who are fascinated by space exploration.
