ONE OF AMERICA'S 3 GREATEST EVER
Gemini 5, Gemini 11, Apollo 12, and Skylab Astronaut/Commander
Pete Conrad, Jr., 1930-1999

Like the other two highlighted in this web site as one of America's 3 Greatest Ever, Pete Conrad was a highly accomplished and successful person who remained down to earth and approachable by anybody. His achievements in the frontiers of space rank him with all the best known, but he will be revered as perhaps the most "knowable."

Pete Conrad is a dearly missed soul on this earth. For your interest, view all of the notes that still remain on the web site that was created shortly after his tragic death in 1999: http://www.peteconrad.org/
