About the Author

BUZZ ALDRIN speaks out as a vital advocate for the continuing quest to expand the frontier of space. He has achieved hero status as a pioneering astronaut who first set foot on the moon during mankind's first landing of Apollo 11 and as a rocket scientist who developed the orbital rendezvous technique critical to America's moon landings and the Aldrin Mars Cycler.
