Okay so Alan Bean didn’t know about the Van Allen Belts. Maybe he wasn’t told or it was not emphasized because there were bigger issues to worry about. I have heard that the flight path minimized exposure to radiation but they still were exposed to a year’s worth of chest X-rays all at once. Two or three astronauts died of different cancers.
