What a guy! - I'm proud to say I shook his hand.

It's funny how at age 93 marrying someone young enough to be your daughter isn't creepy anymore. At 53 tongues would have wagged, now it's just 2 sweet old pensioners spending their last years together.

Congratulations Buzz and Anca!

Is there any spaceflight heritage to the "silver" wedding boots that Mr Aldrin is wearing?

That group photo is a good nerd test - how many of the guys and their flights can you identify without help?

I'm not listing any names to avoid spoiling it for others, but there's a captioned version of the image at https://www.businessinsider.com/apollo-astronauts-50th-moon-landing-anniversary-photos-2019-4 where you can check your answers.

I got 7 out of 8, missed the 4th from the left. Which was odd because I actually shook his hand and got his autograph when I was in high school. Oh well, tempus fugit.
