All this week Paschal High School is remembering alumnus Capt. Alan Bean (1950) and his walk on the moon 50 years ago this month. As part of the celebration, his daughter Amy Bean presented “Moonwalker’s Daughter,” her unique perspective of the space race, to classes.

Dubbed “Moonwalker Celebration,” the weeklong festivities also include artifacts and virtual reality presentations from staff at Fort Worth’s Museum of Science and History; a presentation on the Future of Space from Paschal science teacher Dr. Robert Scheer; “Take Me to the Stars,” a portable planetarium; “Space” music in the atrium during lunch by the Paschal orchestra; and opportunities for students to create patch designs during lunch. The school library will highlight space travel and provide opportunities for real time space exploration through library computers.

Capt. Bean, a lunar module pilot on Apollo 12, was the fourth person to walk on the moon.
