SUCCESSFUL RETURN ON THIS DAY IN 1969


Apollo 12 landed safely in the Pacific Ocean bringing an end to the
second manned mission to the moon.

The Apollo 12 mission was the sixth manned flight in the U.S. Apollo program
and the second to land on the Moon. It was launched on November 14. The
Commander, Charles "Pete" Conrad and Lunar Module Pilot Alan L. Bean 
performed just over one day and seven hours of lunar surface activity while
Command Module Pilot Richard F. Gordon remained in lunar orbit.
