[FONT="Trebuchet MS"]For some reason, reading this article just made me laugh.

[URL="http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/33144699/ns/technology_and_science-space/"][U]?Real Buzz? welcomes Buzz Lightyear back[/U][/URL]

I was also unaware that it had even happened to begin with, or if I read about it, I forgot. For some reason, the idea of holding any type of welcome back from space for a toy, just keeps making me laugh. It's amusing. It was kind of nifty that Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin was there for the event. So now I wonder what's next on the agenda for being sent to space. What do you guys think? [/FONT]

[SIZE="1"]I lol'd. Pretty cool publicity stunt that doesn't come across as overly hammy.

Guess this means the Trek crews are going to be fighting over whose ship gets send up first. [/SIZE]

I have to agree with Gavin that is was a nice little publicity stunt (I do sort've wonder how much disney paid to get NASA to take Buzz up and make a deal out of it.)

I'm sort've surprised that they didn't take it farther and have a whole "time capsule" filled with Buzz merchandise jetisoned from the space shuttle. (Though that probably would've crossed the line into "hammy" eh?)

OMG thats really adorable, I was thinking how dumb the whole thing was until the "real Buzz" said that he briefed Buzz Lightyear beforehand.

It's all fun and games until we realize Lightyear brought a deadly parasitic being from space.

[FONT="Tahoma"][COLOR="DarkGreen"]At first I thought this stunt was kind of dumb, but now I think it's just silly fun and harmless. [/COLOR][/FONT]
