The Toy Story action figure returned on the space shuttle Discovery last Friday, after first launching aboard STS-124 on May 31st 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 math. He’ll be honored in a parade at Disney’s Magic Kingdom-along with his space station crewmates and veteran Buzz Aldrin-on October 2nd.
To commemorate the opening of Toy Story Mania!, a new attraction at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Resort in California, Disney Parks sent Buzz Lightyear on Space Shuttle Discovery. The action figure will reside on the International Space Station through Fall 2008.
