The second man to walk on the moon was part of a tourist group visiting Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station when he became sick and was transported to a hospital in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Over the weekend, his official Twitter account tweeted a pic of Aldrin reading a tabloid and the caption “Catching up on the world while I’m stuck in quarantine. Apparently @KimKardashian is out in public again.”

We knew the 86-year-old was pretty hip, but this hip?
