The portrait of Shepard is framed by the shadows of the Lunar Module, the S-band antenna and the photographer. “I look back now on the flights carrying Apollo 12 crew and my crew as the real pioneering explorations of the Moon. Neil, Buzz, and Mike in Apollo 11 proved that man could get to the moon and do useful scientific work, once he was there. Our two flights - Apollo 12 and 14 - proved that scientists could select a target area and define a series of objectives, and that man could get there with precision and carry out the objectives with relative ease and a very high degree of success.” Alan Shepard
