Apollo 12 — "Running Was Easier Than Walking" 

Catalogue Note

SIGNED and INSCRIBED by ALAN BEAN: "Running was earlier than walking in the 1/6th gravity[.] Running on the moon takes less energy that walking on the moon.  This is because it is easier it is easier for me to move my small ankle joint than to move my much larger hip and knee joints.

"As I run about, I must look ahead and not step into any small craters or on any rocks and injure my ankles. Also, I cannot run too close to large craters because if the edge were to give way, I would slip into the crater and be up there a long, long time.

"Dancing on my tiptoes is the easiest way to move about and it's a lot of fun as well."
