Buzz Aldrin, 86, was medically evacuated from a tourist trip to Antarctica after he began suffering from altitude sickness and shortness of breath. No one panic. After a week-long stay in a New Zealand hospital, the second man to walk on the moon is doing just fine.
Adrin—a legendary astronaut with a mean right hook—was in the South Pole to experience Mars-like conditions and meet with scientists. After illness cut his trip short, doctors at Christchurch Hospital discovered congestion in Buzz’s lungs which has since cleared. Antarctica isn’t a popular destination for octogenarians for probably this exact reason, but let none say Aldrin is anything less than a champion of exploration and an absolute badass.
