“If I had known what I was going to start, I would not have done it because everybody now wants a selfie!” he told the TV host.

Buzz is devoting his time to exploring the possibility of getting to Mars .

But the 86-year-old veteran astronaut admitted that his space exploring days are probably behind him.

“I’ve got an appointment this afternoon,” he joked when asked whether he’d go up to space this afternoon if given the chance.

“I did it once, I’m more valuable here than up there,” he said.
