Buzz Aldrin to Accept an Emmy for NASA
Buzz Aldrin may have been the second astronaut on the moon, but he'll be the first astronaut to accept an Emmy Award.
Aldrin will accept the gold statue on NASA's behalf this Saturday, when the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences honors the space agency with the Philo T. Farnsworth Award. The honor recognizes contributions that impacted television technology or engineering; NASA will be recognized for the innovations that allowed it to broadcast live television images from the moon.
The award comes just a few weeks after the 40th anniversary of Aldrin's walk on the moon with colleague Neil Armstrong.
