One small step for man, one giant leap for pop culture.

In a recent interview with Deborah Solomon of The New York Times, astronaut Buzz Aldrin revealed to the whole wide world that he had just recorded a music video with the rapper Snoop Dogg. When Solomon asked Aldrin if he'd be singing, he politely corrected her. "It’s not singing," Aldrin said, "it’s rapping."

Well, now we have the proof, and oh what a glorious rap it is.

The video, titled "Rocket Experience," arrives with a solid gold pedigree. It was produced and written by Snoop Dogg and rapper pal Talib Kweli. It's being distributed by Funny or Die, the popular comedy website that Will Ferrell helped found. And MTV has been promoting the video heavily on its website. By early this afternoon, the clip, which celebrates the 40th anniversary of the lunar landing, had gone viral, to the tune of tens of thousands of views.

'We came in peace'
