Buzz Aldrin: Apollo 11 astronaut, engineer, author, rap star!
Our Planetary Society Advisor has turned a new page in his long and multi-faceted career with the release of the rap single and video, "Rocket Experience," which intercuts scenes of Buzz bouncing to the beat with images of the Apollo 11 launch. Snoop Dogg and Talib Kweli collaborated on the project. Buzz hopes his song will help introduce a new generation to the excitement of space exploration. A portion of the proceeds from sales goes to Aldrin's ShareSpace Foundation, which supports organizations such as The Planetary Society.Watch the video »Find out about the song »
