The documents stated government provided meals and quarter throughout the 1969 moon landing mission. The document even states Buzz did not have to for the rocket fuel of Apollo 11.  Buzz shared pictures of the documents on Twitter calling them his favorite travel vouchers.

Buzz also shared how the Apollo 11 members could not escape custom taxes when it came to moon. The Apollo 11 mission crew also included Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins. The entire crew had to sign return forms from the moon.

The return documents detail astronauts were kept in quarantine for three weeks after returning. The quarantine determined if the astronauts had brought back any germs from the moon.

Previously Buzz had shared information they were quarantined to ensure the moon dust did not cause any disease. The rags used to wipe the moon dust were disposed of in the ocean. Buzz even joked the story could lead to a Godzilla movie and he claims the right to it.

It has been 46 years since Apollo 11 landed on the moon on the 20th of July.
