(Radio.com) Former astronaut Buzz Aldrin was recently evacuated from an expedition to the South Pole to receive medical treatment. Aldrin was flown to New Zealand where he was treated by a doctor named David Bowie, according to a new report in the Washington Post.

This unlikely sequence of events of course invites a "Space Oddity" joke, but it gets better. Buzz was, of course, in New Zealand to see what life might like be on Mars.

In a statement on his official site Aldrin writes in part: "I'm extremely grateful to the National Science Foundation (NSF) for their swift response and help in evacuating me from the Admunsen-Scott Science Station to McMurdo Station and on to New Zealand. I had been having a great time with the group at White Desert's camp before we ventured further south. I really enjoyed the time I spent talking with the Science Station's staff too."
