Apollo 11 Customs Declaration

Click the image to see the full-sized version! When Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, (and the decidedly less intrepidly-named) Michael Collins landed off the coast of Hawaii on July 24th, 2009, they were asked to fill out a customs form like any visitor to the United States. Although the paperwork was tongue-in-cheek, the three astronauts were quarantined in a special NASA holding unit for three weeks to prevent Earthly contamination by moon-germs. I’d like to take this opportunity to say ‘thank you” to the astronauts, for agreeing to be locked in what looks like a taco truck for almost a month to protect us from lunar cooties.
