Apollo 12 Mission

Whoopie! Man, that may have been a small one for Neil, but that's a long one for me.”

— Pete Conrad

Apollo 12 was the sixth manned mission in the Apollo program and the second to land on the Moon. The mission was commanded by Charles "Pete" Conrad, and launched in November 1969, four months after Apollo 11. The landing site for the mission was the Ocean of Storms. Key objectives for the mission were to demonstrate a precise landing, which had not been achieved on Apollo 11, and also to visit the Surveyor 3 probe, to bring back a part of it for analysis.
