Buzz Aldrin looks completely baffled during Donald Trump's speech on space

While scientists and space-heads alike are delighted to have a White House once again interested in space travel, actually hearing Trump talk about space was a gross reality check.

But nobody was more purely and totally mystified than Buzz "second man on the moon" Aldrin.

"We are a nation of pioneers and the next great American frontier is space".

But when Mr Trump faced cameras to comment on the order, Aldrin, standing beside the president, appeared perplexed as he spoke about space bringing people together.

Donald Trump was flanked by world-renowned astronauts as he signed an executive order re-launching America's National Space Council.

Not too many of us think of Donald Trump as The Science President.

As Trump signed the order, Aldrin said: "To infinity and beyond", in reference to Buzz Lightyear's famous catchphrase in the movie 'Toy Story.' However, Trump didn't seem to get the reference. "At some point in the future, we're going to look back and say how did we do it without space?".

Officials who attended the signing ceremony include Pence, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, former NASA flight director Gene Kranz and astronauts Buzz Aldrin, David Wolf and Benjamin Drew.

Aldrin seemed uncomfortable. "To infinity and beyond!" he joked, while others chuckled. "We don't really don't know", he mused out loud.

Her further added that Vice President Mike Pence was "very much into space", as well. "Space! That's all it has to say is 'space.' There's a lot of room out there, right?"

This was his reaction when Trump later remarked: "Can you believe that? There's gotta be something, but it could be infinity, right?"
