From Lunar Orbit to the Stars
Apollo astronaut Buzz Aldrin stepped out of the history books and onto the dance floor as a contestant on the ABC Television series, Dancing with the Stars. Aldrin was teamed with professional dancer, Ashley Costa, a Stars veteran. Spurring Aldrin on was a message from astronaut T.J. Creamer and Expedition 23 crew members aboard the International Space Station. Aldrin and Neil Armstrong were the first men to set foot on the moon on July 20, 1969.
