Here are 5 things you probably don't know about Buzz Aldrin...

#5...In what might be the most unbelievable coincidence in space history or just a sign that destiny is a real thing, Buzz Aldrin's mom's maiden name was Moon.

#4 Buzz holds the distinction of being the first person to ever eat on the moon. The first moon meal? A ham salad sandwich. Personally, I would have gone with the Jersey Mike's Club Supreme)

#3 Buzz holds another lunar first as well. He is apparently the first human to urinate on the moon. Well, not literally on the moon. He peed in his spacesuit (as he was supposed to do).

#2 Buzz once got so mad at a moon landing non-believer who called him a liar and a coward that he socked the guy in the face, and it all got caught on video. And by the way, that is no way to talk about a national treasure.

#1 Aldrin has never claimed to see a UFO as so many people believe.  He did once say he saw something outside the window of Apollo 11 but he believed it to be a part of his spaceship. Maybe he didn't see one, but I wonder if he believes in them.

So, there you go. 5 things you probably didn't know about New Jersey's own man on the moon, Buzz Aldrin, who will celebrate his 92nd birthday on January 30th.
