If this were to happen today, Aldrin's $33.31 would be worth around $217, taking into account inflation, according to the Bureau of Labor Statics

For his flight, Aldrin labeled his travel itinerary as a round-trip ticket to and from Houston, with stops in Cape Kennedy, “Moon,” and “Pacific Ocean.”

The expense form did not specify exactly what the $33.31 out-of-pocket reimbursement from NASA was spent on.

And even though he, Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins returned from the moonlanding as heroes, they didn't get to skip out on customs forms.

On Sunday, Aldrin also posted that paperwork to Twitter:
