Title 14,Section 1211 of the Code of Federal Regulations requires that U.S. citizens submit to quarantine if exposed to extraterrestrial material from NASA missions.

Sorry. I figured some of it was probably questionable, but I'm not going to go through the whole thing and verify each one.

I guess I will from now on, so as to prevent confusion.
