He may have once walked on the moon, but Buzz Aldrin had a more difficult time gliding across the ballroom floor on Dancing With The Stars.
The 80-year-old astronaut was voted off the popular US television show last night after failing to impress the judges with his waltz.
The judges said Aldrin seemed to do more walking than waltzing, giving him and his dance partner a score of 13 – the night’s lowest.
“I did this show for the fighter pilots out there, the military people and the elder geezers like me who would just like to see an elder come back week after week on the show,” Aldrin said after learning his fate.
Aldrin said he also wanted to raise awareness of the US space program through the show.
As he did his final dance, the other cast members saluted him.
