“If you take more blood from me, Joe, I am so gonna ban you from the beer spigot.” Pete Conrad submits to a dental checkup from Joseph Kerwin, America’s first space physician.
“Awwww DUDE I MADE THAT SIDE TOO SHORT. Sorry ’bout that. It’s just hair. It will grow out…” Pete Conrad uses a 1973 Flowbee to trim Paul Weitz’s hair.
“Teeheehee, look, my head is in this plate thing-y!” Joseph Kerwin, you are an astronaut, you’re not supposed to be there.
If your name is Joseph Peter Kerwin, contact this blog and let me know what the heck was exactly going on in this photo. For all mankind.
