Every man who walked on the Moon had a family. Their strength and sacrifice was equal to those of the astronauts themselves and NASA’s ambitious plans were impossible without their support. Amy Bean, daughter of Apollo 12 astronaut – and Fort Worth native – Alan Bean, lived that extraordinary experience. Come relive the Space Race from this untold perspective, as she describes what it was like to see her own dad walk among the stars. Discover the traditions of the Astronaut Wives and the lessons passed on from one generation to the next. This is history in its most vivid, personal form.
