Buzz Aldrin’s ‘out of this world’ selfie is better than yours

Space Selfie

The “selfie” has been around a lot longer than social media. Perhaps the earliest famous selfie came courtesy of NASA astronaut Buzz Aldrin. He took one in outer space back in 1966.

“I didn’t realize that I was pioneering the selfies,”¬†Aldrin said about the snap. “This camera is fixed. And then I go click. I did that. Click. I take a picture. Then the sun comes up.”

Aldrin said he took the space selfie because he did not have anything else to do at the time.
