Interview with Buzz Aldrin

Oct 26 2013 - 10:30am to 11:15am
Museum in Washington, DC

Join us for an interview with NASA astronaut, Buzz Aldrin. In this talk moderated by Leonard David, Aldrin will discuss his book Mission to Mars: My Vision for Space Exploration.

In his book, Aldrin speaks out as an advocate for the continuing quest to push the boundaries of the universe as we know it. As a pioneering astronaut who set foot on the moon during mankind's first landing with Apollo 11 - and 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, one that will take humans to Mars by 2035.

Tickets are not required. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Buzz Aldrin will sign books at the museum store at 11:30 am.
