Buzz Lightyear Back From 468 Days In Spaaace

How did I miss this? The Toy Story action figure returned on the space shuttle Discovery last Friday, after first launching aboard STS-124 on 31 May 2008. Here's a video of his time on the International space station.

Buzz was up there as part of a program by NASA and Disney to encourage students to study science, technology and maths. He'll be honoured in a parade at Disney's Magic Kingdom along with his space station crewmates and veteran Buzz Aldrin-on October 2.

Too. Freakin'. Cute. To infinity and beyond! [Orlando Sentinel and Newslite | Photo by Tony Landis/NASA]
