In Part 2 of this two-part series, ScienCentral once again takes to the streets of New York City to ask passersby if they have questions they would like to “Ask an Astronaut.” In this installment, Buzz’s fascinating and candid answers cover everything from the physical side effects of space travel to the first thing he ate (and, ahem… drank) when he returned from the historic moon landing of Apollo 11. (Check out Part 1 of the series here.)

Interviewee: Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 Astronaut.
Produced by Toni Subklewe and Tom Fishman — Edited by Charles Young and James Eagan

3-2-1 Launch!

We at ScienCentral thought, “What better way to kick off the launch of our new website 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.

This video is the second of several original Web Shows featuring Mr. Aldrin that will run on 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!

    If terrorists were taking over the Moon, I'd want Buzz as our first line of defense.

    Too bad they shut down the program in the 70's. Just think where we'd be today if we had made a continued and serious commitment to space exploration. If only the SuperPowers of the world would spend more time working together for the common good of man, then we could achieve incredible things as a single race of people working for the betterment of all.

    UFOs aren’t necessarily alien spacecrafts. Most of the time it’s just new technology that either our government or other countries are trying out, like the B2 Stealth Bomber.
