There’s a Government Form For Your Moon Expenses

As far as government paperwork goes, this might just be the best government paperwork ever filed. 

According to the Federal government, employees embarking on government-sponsored missions for which there are billable expenses must fill out expense reports and submit them, including if their government-sponsored mission was to the moon. Yesterday, former NASA astronaut and noted moon mission-er Buzz Aldrin shared the paperwork he filed with NASA in order to get $33.31 worth of fuel expenses back - expenses he accrued driving from Houston to Cape Kennedy, where he boarded the Apollo spacecraft.

The paper, which is beyond cool and more than a little surreal, lists the the mission as a "round trip" for Col. Edwin A. "Buzz" Aldrin, going from Houston to Cape Kennedy to the moon to Cape Kennedy and back to Houston.
