From ThinkGeek (via the Coop), NASA Lunar Bootprint Coasters:
The "one small step" quote is associated with the first man on the moon, Neil Armstrong. What many don't know, though, is the famous footprint photo is actually Buzz Aldrin's footprint, shot by the man himself. His "one small step" is just as memorable as Neil's, but Buzz doesn't often get the proper credit from most people.

Not from you, though. You know better. Edwin Eugene "Buzz" Aldrin is a frickin' genius, and a heck of a pilot in his own right. We commemorate his contributions, not only his work in the famous Apollo 11 mission, but voicing himself on an episode of The Simpsons and punching that Apollo conspiracy guy in the jaw.

Celebrate Buzz and take one small step to preserve your furniture with this set of NASA Lunar Bootprint Coasters. This set of four features a dimensional representation of the bootprint, plus art from the plaque left behind by the Apollo 11 astronauts.

If it were a same level imprinted Apollo moon print I would buy it, but seems somewhat unstable as a coaster for my drinks.
