It must be hard for a man who has set foot on the moon to keep things interesting here on earth, and according to TMZ, Buzz Aldrin's third marriage didn't make the cut. Aldrin, 81, and Lois Driggs Cannon filed for divorce two days ago in an LA Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences. The pair got married over 23 years ago, on Valentine's Day in 1988.

Before his nuptials to Cannon, Aldrin was first married to Joan Archer, and then to Beverly Zile. He has three children with Archer: James, Janice, and Andrew. And while we're sure you're up on your NASA history, Aldrin is famous for being the second man to set foot on the moon following Neil Armstrong, as part of the Apollo 11 mission in 1969.
