How we can send people to Mars

How we can send people to Mars

“Florida Institute of Technology held a signing ceremony formalizing the establishment of the Buzz Aldrin Space Institute at the university… led by legendary Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin, the Institute will promote the settlement of Mars through research.”

At the age of 85, Aldrin is actively involved, not just a figurehead. He’s been reaching into space for decades. In 1963 he received a PhD with a thesis on Manned Orbital Rendezvous and six years later was the second man to walk on the Moon.

Aldrin struggled with depression and alcoholism and soared beyond. He could have become a ponderous public figure, but he seems to have a sense of humor – even making fun of himself on The Big Bang Theory.

He truly fits America’s vision of an astronaut.
