"I'm really looking forward to making some major contributions to the administration's policy that will be carried out by the Congress for the benefit of all those who have worked so hard for so many years" on the space program, said Aldrin, who piloted the first manned lunar landing.

Last week, Gosselin admitted that being on the show "is a lot harder than I ever imagined," and indeed, "Dancing With the Stars" hasn't been kind to Gosselin, though she's already earned her reality-TV stripes many times over.
Previously, her partner, Tony Dovolani, raged at her lack of talent, venting, "Nothing in dancing is natural to Kate."
As she nagged him again and again about the moves, he growled, "I've never been questioned in my teaching."
He finally exploded, "I quit."
Dovolani came back to Gosselin, but the dancing hasn't gotten much better. On the night Aldrin received a 13, Gosselin and Dovolani did only two points better.
