"First Men — Neil Armstrong" by Alan Bean

In 1969, he became the fourth human to walk on the moon. In 1973, he made his second and final trip to Skylab 3. He retired from NASA in 1981.

So what has Alan Bean been up to since his days in the space program?

Jeffrey Roth, director and executive producer of the award-winning documentary "The Wonder of it All," featuring interviews with seven of the Apollo astronauts who walked on the moon, provided SpaceTimesNews.com with this sneak peak at the short film "Alan Bean Artist/Astronaut." In it, Bean, the Apollo 12 lunar command pilot, works in his art studio, describing the unique paintings he's been creating since retiring from NASA.

The video was originally produced — and shown — at the National Air and Space Museum during its Apollo 11 40th anniversary events in 2009.
