There are many things you can do to an astronaut, especially the second man to ever set foot on the moon, on this 45th anniversary of the lunar landing.
Shake his hand and wish him well is one. Or simply stay out of his way.
But you can’t confront him about your own conspiracy theories and make him swear on a bible that the July 1969 moon landing was no hoax.
When someone did, he got a punch in the face from Buzz Aldrin.
Apparently, the man has been hounding Aldrin for years about his supposed participation in a government-staged lunar landing to make it appear the United States had won the space race with the Soviet Union.
But the venerable 75-year-old hero has had enough. And there’s a viral YouTube video to prove it.
Before a scrum of photographers and cameramen, Aldrin appears to keep his cool as the man stops him in a hallway, follows him to the street and back inside the building, bible in hand.
When the man again tries to shove the bible into Aldrin, the septuagenarian lets fly an overhand right at the taller guy probably half his age, rocking the man back on a leg.
The video shows the moment of impact — repeatedly.

Perfect timing. If only the guy knew this was no day for obnoxious truthers like him.
Police declined to press charges, according to reports.
