Buzz Aldrin's Ex-Wife: Home, Sweet Home -- Spends Space Bucks On New Condo

45 years after Buzz Aldrin stepped on the Moon ... the trip's still paying huge dividends -- just ask his THIRD ex-wife, who's snatching up a prime piece of luxury real estate. 

Lois Driggs Cannon dropped just under $1 mil -- $995,000 on the sixth-floor condo which features 2,045 sq. feet, 2 bedrooms and 3 baths, but the real value is ... location, location, location. The pad is located in the exclusive Wilshire Corridor area of Los Angeles.

Buzz and Lois' divorce
was finalized in December 2012, -- and she walked way with nearly $250,000 cash, $9,500 per month in spousal support ... AND 30 percent of Buzz's future income.

Apollo 11 ... the gift that keeps on giving.
