What Astronauts Really Look Like When They Return from the Moon

We’ve all seen “return from space” scenes in a zillion Hollywood ‪‎Sc-iFi‬ films, but this pic below, from legendary astronaut and moonwalker Buzz Aldrin is the real deal…THIS is what it REALLY looks like when astronauts return from the ‪Moon‬! Here’s what Buzz had to say about this pic: “Yep – Neil, Mike and I had to go through customs returning from the moon after our Apollo 11 mission. Thankfully we had “nothing to declare”. We left some things on the moon to save weight – our boots, backpacks, Hasselblad camera, a bag of trash. In retrospect it would have been a good idea to have brought the boots and camera home to Earth but we needed to make the spacecraft lighter.”
