Worldwide alumnus and retired NASA astronaut Terry Virts hangs out with Buzz Aldrin at SXSW

Nothing to see here but a couple of retired astronauts hanging out at this week's South by Southwest Conference in Austin, TX.

Worldwide alumnus and retired NASA astronaut Terry Virts met up with NASA legend Buzz Aldrin right before Aldrin gave a speech at the yearly festival. Virts is seen in the photo wearing Aldrin's credentials. 

My friend @AstroTerry showed up to hang with me at #SXSW but if he starts impersonating me since he has my pass don't buy it.

You can learn more about Virts and his time as the commander of the International Space Station in this Embry-Riddle interview.
