Pete Conrad's grimy EVA suit and lunar samples at JSC, Houston.

Pete Conrad was the third man to walk on the Moon.

When Pete Conrad and Alan Bean docked with the Command Module
and the hatch was opened, Command Module pilot "Dick" Gordon
saw how dusty and grimy the two moon walkers were and said,
"You guys ain’t gonna mess up my nice clean spacecraft", and slammed
the hatch.

Conrad and Bean stripped naked and stowed their gear in zip lock bags
and floated into the Command Module wearing nothing but their headsets.
