Download PDF for this date

The three Apollo 12 astronauts, Allen Bean. Charles Conrad and Richard Gordon, are expected to visit Israel next spring to attend the planting of the first trees in the Astronauts Forest which the Jewish National Fund is planting near Jerusalem. The moon voyagers and their wives have appeared at INF functions in Houston and Dallas. Last week they were each presented with a certificate attesting to the planting of trees in their names in the Astronaut’s Forest.
