Fact of the Day: Edwin Aldrin

While Buzz Aldrin is one of the most famous astronauts in U.S. history, his name is really a nick-name before he had it legally changed in 1988. His birth name is Edwin Eugene Aldrin, and the name Buzz came about as his sister had called him "buzzer" as she (at the time) couldn't pronounce "brother" correctly.
