TRUTH !!
Before the ticker tape parades and the inevitable world tour, the triumphant
Apollo 11 astronauts were greeted with a more mundane aspect of life on
Earth when they splashed down 50 years ago today (July 24) — going through
customs.

Just what did Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael
Collins have to declare? Moon rocks, moon dust and other lunar samples,
according to the customs form filed at the Honolulu Airport in Hawaii on
July 24, 1969 — the day the Apollo 11 crew splashed down in the Pacific
Ocean to end their historic moon landing mission.
