Conrad and Bean also left a small, automatic camera timer on the surface. Conrad had conspired with support engineers to sneak the item on board to get pictures of him and Bean together. But when the time came to take the shot, they couldn't find the timer. Bean eventually found it, but it was too late to set up the shot. He threw it as far from the Lunar Module Intrepid as possible.
In 1971, after finishing more serious surface activities, commander Alan Shepard added a six-iron golf club head to the handle of his contingency sample return container. Then he pulled a golf ball out of his pocket. He dropped the ball to the surface and took a one-handed swing. On the third try he connected with the ball and sent it flying for "miles and miles." That golf ball is still lying somewhere near the Fra Mauro crater.
The entire Duke family took a trip to the moon in 1972; at least, their photographic likeness did. Apollo 16 lunar module pilot Charlie Duke brought a small family portrait with him to the Descartes highlands. On his third EVA, he dropped the photo in its protective case into the lunar dust, pausing to snap a few pictures of it before moving on with his activities.
