Interviewee: Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 Astronaut.
We at ScienCentral thought, “What better way to kick off the launch of our new Web site than with the help of astronaut extraordinaire, Buzz Aldrin?” We caught up with the American icon at the premiere of the new animated 3D film Fly Me to the Moon in which Buzz makes a live-action cameo appearance. The movie tells the story of the Apollo 11 mission with a whimsical twist involving three tween-aged flies that go on an incredible space adventure. The G-rated family film aims to reinvigorate the public’s excitement and interest in space exploration.
With that same spirit in mind, ScienCentral took to the streets of New York City to ask passersby if they had questions they would like to “Ask an Astronaut.” Buzz’s fascinating and candid answers cover everything from his thoughts on the vast emptiness of space to his musings on the first thing he ate when he returned from the historic moon landing of Apollo 11. The video is part one in a series of several original Web pieces featuring Mr. Aldrin that will run on ScienCentral.com in the coming weeks, so be sure to check back often!
Fly me to the Moon lands in theaters August 15, 2008. Thanks to Buzz for helping ScienCentral blast off!Share Post: | Stumble | Share on Facebook | Tweet This |
