Happy Birthday Buzz!
Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon, turns 80 today. Although the famous Apollo 11 mission was over four decades ago (July 20, 1969 in fact) when NASA was in its infancy, Buzz continues to be very vocal in matters of human spaceflight. He is an outspoken critic of spaceflight policy and an expert in communicating all things space to the public. Well anyway, happy buzz-day!
