Dr. Buzz Aldrin
Former US Astronaut, Second Man to Land on the Moon
Buzz Aldrin is one of the Apollo 11 astronauts who, in 1969, landed their Lunar Module on the moon's Sea of Tranquility and became the first of two humans to walk on the moon. This unprecedented heroic endeavor was witnessed by the largest worldwide television audience in history.
Since retiring from NASA, the Air Force, and his position as Commander of the Test Pilot School at Edwards Air Force Base, Dr. Aldrin has remained at the forefront of efforts to ensure a continued leading role for America in manned space exploration. To advance his lifelong commitment to venturing outward in space, he founded his rocket design company, Starcraft Boosters, Inc., and the ShareSpace Foundation, a non-profit organisation devoted to opening the doors to space tourism for all people. He was presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest honour amongst over 50 other distinguished awards and medals from the United States and numerous other countries.
Dr. Aldrin encourages audiences to "reach for the stars" in life and their endeavours, and shares his memories of his momentous walk on the moon, the travels he's taken since and his vision for the future.
Dr. Aldrin’s fascinating presentations are highly sought after by a diverse range of audiences. He draws upon his experience and insights with stories of his space walks and moon walks, and takes us on a journey into the future with his vision of a space-faring world.
