The Moon Men In Ceylon

NASA’s Apollo 11 spaceflight made history in July 1969 when it became the first to land humans on the moon. The historic moon landing was followed by five more — and Apollo 12, which took 3 astronauts to the moon, landed in November 1969.

The following year, the three Apollo 12 astronauts — Charles Conrad Jr., Richard F. Gordon Jr., and Alan L. Bean — visited Ceylon as part of a goodwill tour, spending several days on the island and gifting the country four particles of ‘moon dust’ from their travels.
