Chronology of Events
Conrad and Bean left the Intrepid twice for periods of about four hours.
A lunar scientific station was set up during the first exploration period. It consisted of a nuclear power source, telemetry equipment, a magnetometer, an ionosphere detector, an atmosphere detector, a solar wind spectrometer, and a seismometer.
During the second excursion the astronauts "visited" Surveyor 3, which had landed on the Moon in 1968.
About 120 pounds of lunar material was returned to Earth for study.
