Purgatory Post marks Apollo 12’s 50th anniversary

Apollo 11 gets all the fame for putting the first men on the moon; Apollo 13, for returning its crew safely to earth despite near catastrophe. But Apollo 12? Not so much recognition, which Purgatory Post addressed earlier this month with a pair of stamps commemorating the second mission to put men on the moon.

The first of the 12-sola stamps pictures crew members Pete Conrad, Dick Gordon, and Alan Bean, plus their launch, while the second stamp reproduces the Apollo 12 mission patch and features a photo of Bean stepping down from the lunar lander.

Purgatory Post is commemorating the 50th anniversary of each of the United States’ space missions, so we can expect the next stamps in the series commemorating Apollo 13 in April 2020.
