All hail the wonders of bureaucracy, lunar version

Lunar customs form from Buzz Aldrin

Yes, Apollo 11 astronauts completed customs forms for their moon trip

You can fly to the moon, but you still can’t escape paperwork. Over the last week, astronaut Buzz Aldrin — the second man to set foot on the moon in 1969 — has been tweeting some of the mundane forms from his historic Apollo 11 journey.

Aldrin shared the below customs declaration form that he, Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins signed upon arriving in Honolulu following their Pacific splashdown. Like responsible travelers, they declared that they were bringing samples of “moon rock” and “moon dust” into the country.
