To be a fashionable geek is usually a contradiction of terms, but Apollo 11 moonwalker Buzz Aldrin and Bill Nye (“the Science Guy”) pulled it off during New York Men’s Fashion Week.

The 86-year-old former astronaut teamed up with the bowtie-wearing educator and TV personality to show off space-shiny duds designed by Nick Graham.

Nye, who got his start on TV as a geeky experimenter on KING-TV’s “Almost Live” late-night show, doubled as the announcer for this week’s runway outing, titled “Life on Mars: Fall-Winter 2035.”

Nye wore a silver-and-charcoal suit featuring a Saturn print, while Aldrin showed off a shiny metallic bomber jacket, worn over a black and silver version of his trademark “Get Your Ass to Mars” T-shirt.
