S73-29141 (22 June 1973) --- The three Skylab 2 crewmen arrive on the deck of the prime recovery ship, USS Ticonderoga, following the successful splashdown of the Skylab 2 Command Module about 835 miles southwest of San Diego, California. Leading down the steps is astronaut Charles Conrad Jr., commander, followed by scientist-astronaut Joseph P. Kerwin, science pilot, and astronaut Paul J. Weitz, pilot. Recovery and medical personnel walk down the steps with the astronauts. The crewmen remained inside the spacecraft (seen in background) until it was hoisted aboard the recovery ship. Conrad, Kerwin and Weitz had just completed a 28-day stay with the Skylab 1 space station in Earth orbit conducting numerous medical, scientific and technological experiments. Photo credit: NASA
