Today’s the day that the Apollo 11 mission finally concluded.
Mike, Neil & Buzz were finally released back out into the world after being in quarantine since landing. They could finally be reunited with their families.
It seems like a crazy notion, because if they had bought any moon bugs back with them, these would have been released into the air and water as soon as the command module hatch was opened in The Pacific Ocean.
Apollo missions 12 and 14 also went through this same ordeal.
More details about the quarantine are on the Sky At Night Web page:
