“You’re trying to plant those little experiments, which, at that time, you don’t care whether they’re seismometers, magnetometers, solar winds; you just have to put that particular device level and pointed north or something like that. And so you’re really not doing anything so, more than, like, housekeeping, almost.” Alan Bean
