1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Homesteading Space, by two of Skylab's own astronauts and a NASA journalist, tells the dramatic story of America's first space station from beginning to fiery end." "Homesteading Space is much more than a story of technological and scientific success; it is also an absorbing, sometimes humorous, often inspiring account of the determined, hardworking individuals who shepherded the program through a near-disastrous launch, a heroic rescue, and an exhausting study of Comet Kohoutek, as well as the lab's ultimate descent into the Indian Ocean. Featuring the unpublished in-flight diary of astronaut Alan Bean, the book is replete with the personal recollections and experiences of the Skylab crew and those who worked with them in training, during the mission, and in bringing them safely home."--Jacket

He continued to fly NASA missions until 1981, when he began a new career as an artist. Most of his paintings depict memorable moments from the Apollo missions. Captain Bean is also a highly sought-after motivational speaker. In conjuction with a 2001 exhibit of his artwork, he hosted a special presentation at the Coaster Theater in Cannon Beach, Oregon in which he related his favorite Apollo program anecdotes. The live presentation was recorded and supplemented with NASA images and film footage, as well as Captain Bean's own artwork."--
