When They Got Back from the Moon, Apollo 11 Astronauts Went through Customs

NASA has confirmed that Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins went through customs upon their return to Earth and the United States. They filled out the above form, declaring their travel itinerary and that they had brought back moon rocks, dust, and samples through the US border. They did not mention the whiskey smuggled inside Aldrin's suitcase.

So if they went through customs, that means they were shooting the 'landing' on the moon maybe in Mexico or Canada :)
Another proof it never happened!!!

Seems to me this is needless bureaucracy for the sake of bureaucracy. "They left the U.S., so they gotta go through customs!"

The first people to go to the motherf-ing MOON and they're made to fill out PAPERWORK!?

I question whether this really happened -- there is no Govt Form number at the bottom. I've worked over 30 years with the Govt and haven't seen any form that didn't have some form number at the bottom.
