Space Camp would like to AXE them a few Questions

A few weeks ago, AXE Body Spray, that awful product teenage boys bathe in, released a series of ads featuring Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin.  You might have seen them.

Space Camp naturally wanted a few words with Unilever, the owners of the AXE brand.

Wes Lyons has had great coverage as this has unfolded.  If you want to learn more, I encourage you to check out his coverage.  The first article provides a play-by-play of a meeting of the Alabama Space Science Exhibit Commission to discuss the issue, and a follow-up as well.
