Buzz Aldrin all smiles after medical evacuation from South Pole

Former astronaut Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon, was evacuated Thursday from the South Pole for medical reasons, officials said.

Aldrin, 86, piloted the first lunar landing module to reach the surface of the moon in 1969. He followed Neil Armstrong out the door and into history.

The tour company White Desert issued a statement Thursday saying Aldrin was visiting the South Pole with other tourists when "his condition deteriorated." The company said Aldrin was flown with a physician to the McMurdo research station on Ross Island in Antarctica and from there to New Zealand.

Aldrin was in stable condition, the statement said.

USA TODAY - After a four-day holiday weekend shopping frenzy, consumers have their sights set on the next discount shopping target — Cyber Monday.

Some 122 million Americans are expected to take to their computers, smartphones or other devices to scoop up bargains, up by 1 million from a year ago, the National Retail Federation forecasts.

Cyber Monday becomes next big target for shoppers

After the Black Friday frenzy, consumers already have set their sights set on the next discount shopping target — Cyber Monday.

The possibility that Cyber Monday, in which promotions move online, could garner Black Friday-like attention is driven by a couple of big factors. One is consumers' insatiable appetite for cool electronics, as evidenced by how they sought out the latest digital products on Black Friday. The other is the move by traditional retailers like Walmart and Target intent on seeing more of their more sales coming from the Internet. They are hoping to take back more market share from Amazon and other online sellers.

Jenah Marsh of Covina, Calif., was fairly unimpressed with the deals she was finding Friday as she shopped with friend Tammy Frame of Thousand Oaks, Calif., at The Oaks Shopping Center. But the prospect of Cyber Monday had her brimming with optimism.

“Cyber Monday — it’s going to be really good,” Marsh said.

Closest 'Supermoon' Since 1948 Thrills Skywatchers (Photos)

This month's full moon came the closest to Earth that it has been since 1948. Skywatchers and astrophotographers flocked to see the big, bright moon in all of its glory Sunday night (Nov. 13).

The full supermoon peaked this morning (Nov. 14) at 8:52 a.m. EST (1352 GMT), but it will still look "super" for about a day after its maximum. So if you haven't seen it yet, there's still some time to go check it out. [Supermoon November 2016: When, Where & How to See It]

But just in case you aren't able to see the supermoon, Space.com has you covered. You check out awesome photos of the supermoon by Space.com's superfans in our supermoon photo gallery.
