  • Hear Buzz Aldrin tell the story of the first Moon landing

    10:11

    Buzz Aldrin was the second man to set foot on the Moon. In February 2016 Aldrin came to the Science Museum in London to tell the story of the historic mission in his own words.

    On 16 July 1969, Apollo 11 launched from Cape Kennedy on its way to becoming the first manned spacecraft to land on the moon. Aboard were Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin - the three brave men who made the historic journey. On 20 July, Armstrong became the first man to set foot on the Moon and Aldrin joined him on the lunar surface soon after. The Moon walk lasted nearly two-and-a-half hours while the pair collected lunar samples and conducted experiments.

    On July 20, 1969, humans walked on another world for the first time in history, achieving the goal that President John F. Kennedy had set in 1961, before Americans had even orbited the Earth. After a landing that included dodging a lunar crater and boulder field just before touchdown, Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin explored the area around their lunar landing site for more than two hours.

    When the lunar module landed at 4:17 p.m EDT, only 30 seconds of fuel remained. Armstrong radioed Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed. Mission control erupted in celebration as the tension breaks, and a controller tells the crew You got a bunch of guys about to turn blue, we're breathing again.

  • True Stories about the Apollo 11 Moon Landing

    8:29

    Fifty years ago, Apollo 11 began its voyage into American history. And if you've ever had questions about it - we have 5 answers for you! (and they're really weird).

    The Saturn V rocket carrying astronauts Neil Armstrong, Edwin Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 9:32 a.m. on July 16, 1969 — and just four days later, man first set foot on the moon. The moon mission was a milestone in human history. But it was also a groundbreaking moment in broadcast television, as CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite brought the frontier of space to living rooms across America.

  • Journey to the Moon: Edwin Buzz Aldrin #Apollo50

    5:50

    Edwin Aldrin was born in Montclair, New Jersey, on 20 January 1930. His mother, Marion Moon, was the daughter of an Army Chaplain. His father, Edwin Eugene Aldrin, was a Colonel in the Air Force. Buzz grew up in New Jersey and after graduating from Montclair High School, he was educated at the US West Point Military Academy, graduating third in his class with a BS in mechanical engineering. Upon graduation, he entered the United States Air Force, and received pilot training in 1951.

    Aldrin flew 66 combat missions in F-86s in Korea, destroying two MIG-15 aircraft. Known to all by his nickname, Buzz, Aldrin was also one of the most important figures in the accomplishment of Project Apollo which successfully landed an American on the Moon in the 1960s.

    Aldrin became a NASA astronaut in October 1963, the same year that he wrote a dissertation on orbital mechanics to earn a Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge.
    On 11 November 1966, he orbited aboard the Gemini 12 spacecraft, a revolutionary flight that successfully ended the Gemini program. During this time, Aldrin became one of the key figures working on the problem of rendezvous of spacecraft in Earth or lunar orbit and docking them together for spaceflight. Without these skills, Apollo could not have been successfully completed.

    Aldrin was ideally qualified for this work, and his intellectual inclinations ensured that he carried out these tasks with enthusiasm. He worked to develop the necessary procedures and tools for accomplishing space rendezvous and docking. He was also a central figure in devising the methods necessary for carrying out the astronauts' extravehicular activities. This, too, was critical to the successful accomplishment of Apollo.

    Aldrin was chosen as a member of the three-person Apollo 11 crew that landed on the Moon on 20 July 1969, fulfilling the mandate of President John F. Kennedy to send Americans to the Moon before the end of the decade. Aldrin was the second American to set foot on the lunar surface. He and Apollo 11 commander Neil Armstrong spent about 20 hours on the Moon before returning to the orbiting Apollo Command Module with 46 pounds of moon rock. The walk, which was televised, drew an estimated 600 million viewers, making it the largest television audience in history. The spacecraft and the lunar explorers returned to Earth on 24 July 1969.

    In 1971, Aldrin returned to the Air Force and retired a year later. Aldrin was decorated with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, followed by a 45-day international goodwill tour. Other honours include having Asteroid “6470 Aldrin” and the “Aldrin Crater” on the moon named after him. Aldrin and his Apollo 11 crew mates Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins also received the Congressional Gold Medal in 2011.

    He wrote two important books about his activities in the U.S. space program, where he recounted the flight of Apollo 11 and discussed the entire space race between the United States and the Soviet Union. He continues to be an important analyst of the space program and lives near Los Angeles, in California.

    Since retiring from NASA, Aldrin turned to studying advancements in space technology. He devised a spacecraft system for missions to Mars known as the Aldrin Mars Cycler, and received three U.S. patents for his schematics of a modular space station, Star booster reusable rockets, and multi-crew modules.

    He also founded Share Space Foundation, a non-profit organization devoted to advancing space education, exploration and affordable space flight experiences. His latest book, “Mission to Mars: My Vision for Space Exploration” was published by the National Geographic Society in 2013 and outlines his plan to get us beyond the moon and on to Mars.

    As one of the leading space exploration advocates, Buzz continues to chart a course for future space travel and remains a source of inspiration to the next generation of explorers and innovators.

In the years since, Aldrin has become a passionate advocate for returning to space and rekindling America’s ambition to explore the outer limits.

At the 2016 Forbes Philanthropy Summit, Aldrin spoke with Steve Forbes about how the determination of one man in the Apollo program changed history.

    July 20th 1969: 49 minutes after Neil Armstrong delivered his “one small step” line, Buzz Aldrin conducted a series of mobility tests to determine the best ways for astronauts to get around the lunar surface. His walkabout was seen live on television screens across planet Earth. Here – presented in 4K video for the first time – is the view from a motion picture camera in the Lunar Module. NASA’s original slow-scan TV stream has been inset for comparison.
    Buzz’s test ended when Mission Control patched through a call from the President of the United States, Richard Nixon.

    Buzz Aldrin: I'd like to evaluate the various paces that a person can (static) traveling on the lunar surface. I believe I'm out of your field-of-view. Is that right, now, Houston?
    Bruce McCandless CAPCOM (Mission Control): That's affirmative, Buzz. You're in our field-of-view now.
    Buzz Aldrin: Alright, you do have to be rather careful to keep track of where your center of mass is. Sometimes, it takes about two or three paces to make sure you've got your feet underneath you.
    About two to three or maybe four easy paces can bring you to a fairly smooth stop. (To) change directions, like a football player, you just have to put a foot out to the side and cut a little bit.
    The so-called kangaroo hop does work, but it seems as though your forward mobility is not quite as good as it is in the more conventional one foot after another.
    As far as saying what a sustained pace might be, I think that one that I'm using now would get rather tiring after several hundred (static). But this may be a function of this suit, as well as the lack of gravity forces.

  • Michael Collins on flying solo during Apollo 11 moon landing: Not one iota lonely

    1:05

    Michael Collins, who was part of the Apollo 11 moon landing crew and kept the command module flying while Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the moon, has died at the age of 90, his family said on Wednesday. He was sometimes known as the 'forgotten astronaut' because he did not get to land on the moon, while Armstrong and Aldrin became household names. But his role in the mission in 1969 was just as crucial and his task to keep the module in lunar orbit as his crewmates departed in the Eagle lander and then returned safely was just as crucial, nerve-racking and exciting for the mission as a whole.
