Apollo 12 was launched on 14 November 1969, arriving on the Moon in the Ocean of Storms on 19 November 1969. Conrad and Bean made two excursions on the surface for a total of 7 hours 45 minutes, whilst Command Module pilot Richard Gordon orbited the Moon. Apollo 12 splashed down on 24 November 1969. Conrad had already been into space, on Gemini 5 and 11. Apollo 12 was Bean's first spaceflight. Bean later flew on Skylab 3, and Conrad flew on Skylab 2, both in 1973.
