Buzz Lightyear Toy Makes It To Space, Infinity, and Beyond

Posted Sep 16, 2009

Remember Buzz Lightyear? Buzz was the astronaut toy in the movie Toy Story that competed for Andy’s affection against Woody. A Buzz Lightyear toy has made it into outer space and the NASA astronauts that took him up there made the above video showing proof.

Buzz returned to Earth last Friday from the shuttle Discovery after it launched aboard the STS-124 on May 31. Buzz went into outer space as part of a partnership between NASA and Disney to encourage students to study science, math, and technology.
