Buzz AldrinLegendary "space statesman" Buzz Aldrin speaks out as a vital advocate for the continuing quest to push the boundaries of the universe as we know it. As a pioneering astronaut who first set foot on the moon during mankind's first landing of Apollo 11 - and as an aerospace engineer who designed an orbital rendezvous technique critical to future planetary landings - Aldrin has a vision, and in “Mission to Mars” he plots out the path he proposes, taking humans to Mars by 2035. Aldrin boldly advocates continuing exploration of our solar system at a time when America stands at a critical crossroads in its space program. He outlines past triumphs, analyzes recent setbacks, and cheers us on to greater accomplishments, with a message that will ignite a new wave of support and participation across the country for a renewed and ambitious space program.

Buzz Aldrin on MoonBuzz Aldrin, best known for his Apollo 11 moonwalk, holds a doctorate degree in astronautics and, at the age of 82, continues to wield influence as an international advocate of space science and planetary exploration.

This event is a fundraiser for the National Press Club Journalism Institute.
