It has been my privilege to meet and visit with a number of NASA astronauts through relationship with Congressman Ralph Hall (R-TX CD4), former Chairman, the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.

While all astronauts are fascinating people, one stands out: Buzz Aldrin. Yes, Buzz is his legal name.

My neighbor Les Rubin and I watched in rapt attention as the Eagle landed on the moon, July 20, 1969. Our eyes were “glued to the tube” that evening.

Recently, I learned more about Astronaut Aldrin who says he has only two passions: Space Exploration and Hip Hop music.

Enjoy Buzz’s performance in a music video produced by Snoop Dogg three years ago.
