Neil Armstrong and the Apollo 11 crew faced the real chance that they
wouldn't return from the moon safely, leaving their families without
financial support. Due to the extreme danger that they were about to face,
they couldn't take out life insurance policies. So instead, they signed
hundreds of autographs, which their families would have been able to sell if
they didn't make it home. Luckily, those life insurance autographs weren't
needed. They do, however, show up in space memorabilia auctions today,
selling for as much as $30,000.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
