5 - Quick Fix
After the guys had gathered their moon samples to bring back to Earth, they returned to the Lunar Module. They must have been a bit taken aback to realize that a switch on a circuit breaker had broken and they couldn’t ignite the engine. While NASA was frantically trying to fix the problem from Earth, the team caught a few zzz’s. When it still wasn’t fixed upon waking, Armstrong took matters into his own hands and jammed a pen into the mechanism and his quick fix worked! They were soon back in the air thanks to a simple felt tip pen!
4 - Anything to Declare
When Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins arrived in Honolulu, they jokingly filled out the customs and immigration form. Under the section, items to declare, they wrote “moon rock and moon dust samples.” When questioned if they had any conditions on board that might spread disease, they replied, “To be determined.”
3 - Keep it contained
Scientists were concerned that there would be contamination on Earth with lunar pathogens, so the team had to be kept quarantined for 3 weeks. The Mobile Quarantine Facility was a 35-foot or 10-meters long and was designed by Melpar Inc. It had places to sleep, eat and bathroom facilities. They could also communicate with anyone outside the unit until it was time for them to come out. With time they realized that there were no living organisms on the moon, so this practice was discontinued after Apollo 14.
2 - I’m a celeb
When the guys returned to Earth, they went on a global goodwill tour and visited 27 cities in 24 countries over 45 days. They stopped in places like NYC, Japan, Mexico, Iran, Pakistan and even the Congo. They got to meet many celebrities, royalty and even the pope!
