Nixon Backs Space Future

When I announced earlier in the week that I was trying to arrange my schedule to come down, there were those who said, “Well, why can’t you see it all on television?” It is true that I have seen some previous launches on television but I thought I would share with you the experience of one who has never seen a launch “live” before, and what the difference is. And, perhaps, if I may use the analogy of sports, I really believe, while I like to go to a football game live and to feel the crowd and the rest, I really believe that you can sit at home and see a football game on television and probably see it as well or even better than you can see it by being there because the camera will watch that T-formation quarterback and it’ll be sure you are watching the ball rather than the fake.

Bean. In the first in-flight news conference in the history of the space program, Conrad and Bean discussed the desirability of extended lunar excursions beyond their two moon walks, which lasted 4 hr. each.
