How seriously should Trump's proposals regarding space exploration be regarded?
During a press conference, at which the President was speaking of the importance of US space exploration, astronaut Buzz Aldrin was present. No doubt Mr. Aldrin wishes to promote human space exploration, given his having been the second man to walk on the moon. Aldrin did not have much to say at the event, but sometimes facial expressions can speak louder than words.
Aldrin appeared bemused by Trumps comments:
Before signing the executive order Trump joked with Aldrin, saying, "There's a lot of room out there, right?"
The astronaut's responded, "To infinity and beyond."
But Trump didn't seem to get the joke referencing Buzz Lightyear's catchphrase in "Toy Story."
"This is infinity here. It could be infinity. We don't really don't know. But it could be. It has to be something, but it could be infinity, right?" the president replied. (Aol)
