What were Buzz Aldrin's first words on the moon? by monkeydamour Q: Anybody know?

A: Did you mean his first words after the landing or his first words when he actually stepped onto the lunar surface? When the Lunar Module Eagle first touched down in the Sea of Tranquility, Aldrin said, "Contact light." When he first jumped down from the ladder onto the Eagle's footpad, he said, "Beautiful view." Neil Armstrong said, "Isn't that something! Magnificent sight out here." Aldrin replied, "Magnificent desolation." The eloquent phrase "Magnificent desolation" is rather well-known; there's an IMAX movie about the Moon with that title, for example. Then when Aldrin stepped off the footpad and his boots were actually touching the Moon's soil, he said, "Looks like the secondary strut had a little thermal effects on it right here, Neil." Shortly after that, he made a comment about the powdery surface.

Do skeptics also disbelieve this report from Buzz Aldrin of a UFO in space? by Deenie Q: http://video.stumbleupon.com/#p=00x7680x4r Gary...I agree with what you said. It just seems like some skeptics on here won't believe that ANYONE has seen ANYTHING. Same with ghosts. All we're saying in both cases that there is SOMETHING out there. Let's help each other find out what it is...without scoffing at every report mentioned.

A: Skeptics have to have something proven to them, and tend to take nothing on faith. By that definition, I'm a skeptic. The answer is yes: skeptics do disbelieve the report, in general. We weren't there, and we can't figure out what it was because no evidence other than an account of what was perceived was offered. Do they believe he's lying? Probably not. People see lots of things that can't be explained. These unexplained phenomena are called "paranormal" because they exist alongside normal reality, and are normally not perceived. True skepticism is telling people to prove their claims. It's not calling people liars or trying to intimidate or belittle them into conforming with what most people believe is happening. The truth is, a lot of things that people can't explain are just that: unexplained (and likely unexplainable). There can be no explanation for something that has no level of understanding. Therefore, for those who have not had any level of personal experience, it's easy to dismiss claims that are outside the ordinary realm of experience, until you actually have an experience of that nature. The problem is, there's still so much we don't understand about the true nature of Nature, the reality of Reality itself, and our limited understanding of science prohibits us from actively understanding what it is that many people perceive. Add to that outright suppression by people who are made uncomfortable with the idea that there might be something nonphysical in nature which might be alive (ghosts or aliens, take your pick), and the tendency to scoff at people who make outrageous claims that can't be proved, and you have a cocktail for ridicule and division.

Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon, Buzz Aldrin was the second, but who was the third? by stephen f Q:

A: This is the real answer: Captain Charles P. "Pete" Conrad. His steps on the moon were watched by millions who will never forget the "Whoopee'' he shouted while promenading on the lunar surface. It was typical Pete Conrad, friends said, as they buried the man Monday who was the third person to walk on the moon. Conrad, known for his adventurous spirit, was killed July 8, 1999 when he crashed his Harley-Davidson motorcycle along a winding road in Southern California. He was 69.

Buzz Aldrin impact on society? by ninab Q: Buzz Aldrin was the second man to step foot on the moon after Neil. What do you believe to be Buzz Aldrins impact on society?

A: The mission wouldn't have been successful without Buzz. Neil couldn't have done it alone. But NASA wanted a civilian to be the first on the moon.

neil armstrong before buzz aldrin? by Q: buzz aldrin was supposed to be the first man on the moon, but neil armstrong was, why?

A: Armstrong was the commander so the honor was his. Also, the way the hatch opened and each astronaut's position in the LM meant that the hatch blocked Aldrin's exit until after Armstrong got out of the way.

Seriously? How many times are we gonna see Buzz Aldrin get hit by a chair? by The Era of Ay Ry Q:

A: Lol I say about 5 more times before Monday when he guest hosts. You still have Smackdown, and RAW AM so they will show it again and again. It was kind of funny at first, now it's annoying.

If Neil Armstrong and Edwin E. "Buzz" Aldrin, were the first two men on the moon? by I'm Back Q: Who worked the camera when they both were in the shot? But if you view the clips, both there hands were occupied while the camera made its adjustments. oh yea if there is no gravity nor atmosphere there how was the flag blowing in the wind?

A: ..whoa..a lie....

Did Buzz Aldrin really take communion when they landed on the moon? by ht Q:

A: Yes, he did. He spoke the following words... “Houston, this is Eagle. This is the LM pilot speaking. I would like to request a few moments of silence. I would like to invite each person listening in, whoever or wherever he may be, to contemplate for a moment the events of the last few hours, and to give thanks in his own individual way.” ...and then took communion. As Aldrin himself described later... “In the radio blackout, I opened the little plastic packages which contained the bread and the wine. I poured the wine into the chalice our church had given me. In the one-sixth gravity of the moon, the wine slowly curled and gracefully came up the side of the cup. Then I read the Scripture, ‘I am the vine, you are the branches. Whosoever abides in me will bring forth much fruit.’ I had intended to read my communion passage back to earth, but at the last minute Deke Slayton had requested that I not do this. NASA was already embroiled in a legal battle with Madelyn Murray O’Hare [sic], the celebrated opponent of religion, over the Apollo 8 crew reading from Genesis while orbiting the moon at Christmas. I agreed reluctantly…Eagle’s metal body creaked. I ate the tiny Host and swallowed the wine. I gave thanks for the intelligence and spirit that had brought two young pilots to the Sea of Tranquility. It was interesting for me to think: the very first liquid ever poured on the moon, and the very first food eaten there, were the communion elements.”

What did Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Mike Collins all share besides going to the moon? by ANTHONY M Q:

A: They were all born in 1930!

There isn't going to be a new RAW GM as your heard earlier from Buzz Aldrin. We still got John Lovits,...? by I am Cyber Sapien {*_*} Q: Ashton Kutcher, the cast of the upcoming movie A-Team and that actor from USA network's Royal Pains so who is making up this BS?

A: "The guest host concept on Raw is NOT coming to an end, however, and there still will be guest hosts, however it was explained on Raw that the guest hosts will have no authority on the show."

Were you aware that astronaut Buzz Aldrin said that a UFO had followed the Apollo 11 mission to the moon? by Abercromby Q: Don't take my word for it. Watch Buzz Aldrin talk about it himself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlkV1ybBnHI

A: Yes I did, did you? Hope this helps! Remember figure skating is better than hockey but it's still koolio! :)

I heard Buzz Aldrin, the 1st astronaut on the Moon, fought alcoholism. Did he catch himself too often? by DocTWAT BlockClones BM/AMwar OOA Q: Ok, Natdan, then who was the fist man on the moon? Mike Tyson? Ok, whatever, 1st, 2nd, 3rd. Answer the question. Maybe that's why Buzz turned into a bum, because he was the 2nd, and not the 1st. Huh. I guess that would do it.

A: It must have been really hard to live with the fact that he faked being the second man on the moon. I wonder how much he got paid to be an actor in that film.

Buzz Aldrin mentioned NASA has documented 52 changes to the human body in space.? by J Q: anyone know where i can find that list?

A: Hi. The body adapts to its environment and it doesn't 'know' it will return to gravity. Here are some of the changes... http://www.nsbri.org/HumanPhysSpace/introduction/intro-bodychanges.html

Did you know buzz aldrin saw alien space ship? by Dr.MoonFaker Q: it wasnt armstrong but buzz that admitted it. so you nasa fans dont know jack as always, you follow the company line. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KpfvhdmhQy4 are you guys just slow? Buzz is telling us in his own words they saw a ufo that was not part of the rocket. wow you nasa apollogists are something.

A: i saw on the discovery channel that he saw sumfin outside and none of them said nethinv bout it coz the media n stuff were listning 2 their radio comunications and didnt wana say nething. think its benn unclasified now . so my answers yes :) and i sure it had video of aldrin saying it not too many months ago

did Niel Armstrong and buzz Aldrin really land on the moon ? by bardocks8 Q: i heard it was staged and they didn't really land on the moon but i don't know thought so yeah

A: I saw them land on tv and I saw the rocket that took them there. Why spend so much money to try to fool the public? Do you believe there are nuclear bombs all over the planet sitting there waiting for someone to fire them off? We had lots of cash and big aspirations back then.

How close did Neil Armstrong & Buzz Aldrin come to losing their lives in the Apollo moon landing? by Lois Griffin Q:

A: They actually came pretty close. When they landed, they had something less than 30 seconds of fuel in the decent engine before they would have had to abort. The problem was that they were so close to the surface that it would have been questionable if they could do the abort procedure, get the ascent engine fired, and have it arrest their descent before they hit the surface. It's an area of the flight sometimes called the "dead man's band", because you're too high to land successfully, and too low to abort successfully.

Do you believe Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin saw UFO's on the moon? by ketshake Q: And what about the other astronauts who say they've seen them?

A: Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin never claimed to have seen UFOs on the Moon.

on the moon, the gravity is 1/6 that of earth. while on the moon, buzz aldrin carried on his back? by Q: on the moon, the gravity is 1/6 that of earth. while on the moon, buzz aldrin carried on his back a support system that would weight over 1760 N on earth. a) what did the packback weight on the moon ? B) what was its mass on the moon ?

A: The gravity changes the weight of an object, so if the gravity on some object is 1/2 that of the Earth, the weight is now 1/2 that on the Earth. Mass does not change according to the gravitational field; it measures how much of something you have.

Is Lil Wayne jealous of Buzz Aldrin's rap success? by America 101 Q: Is this Little Wayne fellow jealous of Buzz Aldrin's immediate success upon tntering the rap industry? Immediately he gets the chance to work with Snoop on his first single, 'Rocket Experience', which is towards the top of the charts. Lil Wayne didn't start off so well. Is he jealous?

A: Hell naw why would he be he probably dont even know who that is n snoop aint dat hot no more so who gives a fu..ck

Why is Buzz Aldrin saying A Monolith exists on a Mars Moon? by William F Q: Cspan interview about going back to the moon. 20.07.2009 Buzz Aldrin A Monolith exists on a Mars Moon MUST SEE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tlj6u1iQgJQ

A: The real question is why this question is being asked so much. It's a rock, a tall one ... that's it.

Buzz Aldrin boozing on the moon? by Tracy Terry Q: I heard that when astronaut Buzz Aldrin performed holy communion on the moon, he had a thimble full of wine! How could NASA allow this? It seems even a thimble full could be dangerous under those tense circumstances. I love the space program, but some of you space cadets are grade A jerks!

A: It was worse than that. He actually did a hilarious impression of Benny Hill too. But this was part of his mobility tests. Looks absolutely hilarious though if you watch the footage in abnormal speed... A thimble full of wine contains a ridicolously low amount of alcohol. It couldn´t intoxicate a baby. But how did it get to the moon? It wasn´t transported there in a thimble. So how much wine did they have? Did they have a whole bottle?

How long did buzz aldrin work at nasa? by avi:) Q: please answer!

A: 21 years, returned to the Air Force in a managerial role. More info http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buzz_Aldrin#NASA_career

Why does Buzz Aldrin give a deceptive micro-expression after being asked where he was July 20 1969? by Q: Watch his lying , deceptive micro expression after being asked where he was that day ? Watch this clip. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdRXcTJbtCk LIAR ! IT IS OBVIOUS. Watch the lower corner of his mouth LOWER.

A: You discount all the photos, videos, tracking data, rocks, surviving hardware, documentation and personal testimonies in favour of your SUBJECTIVE IMPRESSION of what the movement of A SINGLE TINY MUSCLE means?! Seriously?! Edit: Are you going to choose a BA just to scream at someone again? Maybe call them names like you did a few minutes ago with your other question?

When the Moon landing happened in 1969, Buzz Aldrin said the Moon rang like a bell? by Q: The ringing sounds lasted for a long time like the Moon was hollow. What does this mean?Could the Moon actually be hollow inside? History channel watch series on Ancient Aliens.This was broadcast Saturday all day.

A: Impacts such as from the S-IVB third stage cause seismic waves to reverbate throughout the lunar mass for up to an hour. This was measured by seismometers placed by, among others, Apollo 11 astronauts. The characterization of the Moon ringing "like a bell" is true, and was said by geologists studying the readings of Apollo seismometers after the Apollo 13 S-IVB impact, but Buzz Aldrin did not say this, nor would he have had any way -- scientifically or aurally -- to detect it. This is evidence that the Moon is essentially solid, lacking any liquid component. It is not evidence that it is hollow, since an object does not need to be hollow in order to resonate. All solid objects with appropriate elasticity reverberate. Bells are not in fact hollow, merely concave. EDIT: Ah, yes. The History Channel is not a reliable source of scientific information. It is essentially a tabloid-trash channel these days.

Why did Buzz Aldrin become an astronaut? by Kari Q: As in,what was his inspiration. I've looked all over the web and cant seem to find anything. Can anyone help?

A: I have read a lot of stuff about Aldrin being highly motivated to be the first man to walk on the Moon. Whatever the reason was, it's problaby dating back to his youth, as his father was an aviation pioneer who studied physics with Robert Goddard and worked with Charles Lindbergh. The household must have been talking shop around the clock! And if that isn't a good enough reason... maybe it's no surprise with a mother named... Marion Moon?

Is Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story named after Buzz Aldrin? by hayhay Q: I have always wondered this! So I am finally putting it here!! It would be cool to know if these two are connected.

A: Buzz Lightyear's name was inspired by Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin.[1] Aldrin acknowledged the tribute when he pulled a Buzz Lightyear doll out during a speech at NASA, to rapturous cheers; a clip of this can be found on the Toy Story 10th Anniversary DVD. He did not, however, receive any endorsement fees for the use of his first name.

Why is the American flag waving in this picture with Buzz Aldrin when there is no atmosphere on the moon? by t3x3l Q: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Buzz_salutes_the_U.S._Flag.jpg Theoretically it shouldn't be waving because there's nothing to make it move, unless they made it do that, but idk

A: Because the Moon Landing was a COMPLETE HOAX We dident even have Wallkie Talkie Radios or Color TV when the SUPPOSSEDLY Landed on the moon. Since we use AIR PRopelled type engins to fly and it takes an atmosphere to shoot off a Rocket HOW DID THEY SOFT LAND. Actually Tweety Bird hopped out and flapped his wings to slow them down from 18,000 miles Per Hour to a nice soft landing. Tanks to Tweety Bird we are on the moon . . .

Why did Neil Armstrong get to walk on the moon before Buzz Aldrin? by Killer Barney Q: Why couldnt Buzz go first?

A: The perfectly valid logistic and practical reasons have been given. However, this suited the politicians as well. Neil Armstrong was a civilian, and as such a better choice anyway than a member of the Military in the eyes of the rest of the world, some of whom suggested USA was about to militarize space. He had earlier served in the US Navy and as a research pilot, but as a civilian at the time of Apollo 11, he was the ideal choice anyway.

Can you Name A Specific Task Buzz Aldrin had in the Moon? by Cali Q: 1969: A historic walk on the moon, and each one of the three astronauts had Specific Tasks like Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon. Aldrin was one of them, so, Can you Name A Specific Task Aldrin had???

A: Well, it is gross, but truth, I mean a Historical Poop. Yes, because one of Aldrin's specific task was Pooping on the Moon. Yes, ladies and gentleman: Aldrin was the First Man Pooping on the Moon. But, that was not all: He had to preserved it, place it in a container, and take it back to Earth for analisis and testings. And, the story doesn't end there, no, unfortunately not: When the three astronauts were on the way back to Earth, the lack of gravity made the container (yes, where Aldrin's poop was), open. They made all the efforst possible to close it back on, but, impossible. They had No Other Choice of letting Feces Fly All Over the Spacecraft, and that's how they got back from that historical Fisrt Men on the Moon. Yes, all pooped out!

If you were Buzz Aldrin, would you punch Neil Armstrong just to be the first man on the moon? by John M Q: Before disembarking the shuttle, would you disable him and be the first man on the moon?

A: No those things were planned out years in advance. I'm not going to ruin a long and, illustrious military career by disobeying an order. Besides I got the cool name.

What was the make of the watch that Buzz Aldrin wore to the moon in Apollo 11? by Q: And does the watch maker still make a watch that is similar to it?

A: The Omega Speedmaster Professional? They were physically would watches and NASA took off the metal band in favor of Velcro. They are still made, but who would spend $3,500 dollars for a watch?

Lets hope Buzz Aldrin is sent packing tonight on DWTS. Who do you think will go? by katzy Q: Buzz is a lovely old guy but really he cannot dance and the show is about that. He is moon walking in the moon boots still. Just because he had a face lift doesn't mean he should appear on all the reality and talk shows. Sometimes it is just as powerful a message to be invited on lecture tours. A more dignified manner for such an accomplished man. This show really doesn't do him justice and kind of mocks him.

A: I don't trust that the voting is legit. I think they will rig it so Kate stays on for a few weeks, she is a draw for viewers. It's all about ratings. I'm not watching until the very end when there are only three couples left, and one of them better not be Kate. Poor Buzz Aldrin, he really does need to get voted off. He is really above all this.

What was blurred out on Buzz Aldrin's T-shirt during the practice videos on Dancing With The Stars? by GRRR Q: On the 3/22/10 show, he was wearing a T-shirt with a 1-line message but it was obviously blurred by the network. Was it a political statement, or a commercial promotion? I have never seen that before on this show - his astronaut face shirt was not blurred, so this was intentional by ABC. they censored a national hero!

A: Probably advertising . You pay to advertise and not allow it to be televised without paying for it. He probably didn't realize that and so they had to blurr it out.

Doesn't Buzz Aldrin deserve more appreciation than Neil Armstrong? by Anon A Q: Think about it, Buzz Aldrin let Neil Armstrong go before him, most likely in the knownledge Neil Armstrong was going to hit every histroy book, me worldwide famous, and be amongst the msot memorable men in history? Who here in his situation could pass the oppertunity down, and say here Neil, you deserve it, you go first?

A: Neil Armstrong was the Apollo 11 Mission commander as well as the Eagle pilot. As Mission Commander he was selected to step foot on the moon first. Further more it is Neil Armstrong's piloting skills that saved both him and Buzz Aldrin from being left on the surface of the moon. Bell Aircraft built two Lunar Landing Research Vehicles, which were later converted to Lunar Landing Training Vehicles (LLTV). Nicknamed the 'Flying Bedsteads', they simulated the one-sixth g of the Moon by using a turbofan engine to cancel out most of the craft's weight. Even though he was nearly killed on one, Armstrong maintains that without the LLRV and LLTV, the lunar landings would not have been successful as they gave commanders valuable experience in the behavior of lunar landing craft. The objective of Apollo 11 was to land safely rather than touch down with precision on a particular spot. Three minutes into the lunar descent burn he noted that craters were passing about two seconds too early, which meant the Eagle would likely land beyond the planned landing zone by several miles. Armstrong took over manual control of the LM, found an area which to him seemed safe for a landing and touched down on the moon on July 20, 1969. Some accounts of the Apollo 11 landing describe the LM's fuel situation as having been dire, with only a few seconds remaining when they touched down. Armstrong had landed the LLTV with less than 15 seconds left on several occasions and he was also confident the LM could survive a straight-down fall from 50 feet if needed. The one thing that has to make Aldrin look bad is that he is a West Point grade that retired from the Airforce as a Colonel. Where Neail was a Purdue grade and then later got a Masters at University of Southern California and retired form the Navy as a Lieutenant, JG.

What are some fan clubs i can join that are about Buzz Aldrin? by Mongoose BMX Rider Q: I would like to know some clubs and a way to join them about astronaut Buzz Aldrin I'm a space lover and i would like to know about any fan clubs there areabout Buzz Aldrin, and how i can join them.

A: you could always stalk him, you space freak

Did Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong really come to the Lovell's house during the Apollo 13 mission? by IceGirl Q: I saw the movie, and I am doing a project to see if every event was competely accurate. I figured out everything else, though.

A: No, although the wives of flight crews do socialize and support one another, what was portrayed in the movie was NOT accurate. Astronauts and their spouses work very hard to protect their private lives. Various members of NASA provided ongoing support (notes & calls) and encouragement to the Lovell family as the event unfolded. What was true was that hundreds of people were involved with just-in-time engineering of technical solutions. If the face of certain catastrophe, this is probably the best example of people working together under extraordinary pressure to save people.

How could Buzz Aldrin have possibly gotten depressed after returning from the moon? by Q: He could have written his own ticket and done anything career wise - Started his own airline (or any other business) taught at university, author/lecturer. I'm sure the list was endless. Granted, he wouldn't have been able to top the moon walk, but, nevertheless, many satisfying career options were surely available. Did any of the other Apollo astronauts suffer from depression after returning home? Baffled!

A: He said he was unprepared for the fame that followed his return to Earth. Aldrin's depression and alcohol problems were inherited, he said. His mother, whose last name ironically was Moon, killed herself. So did her father. Both parents drank.

Would we have been better off if Buzz Aldrin was the first man on the moon? by Uncle Pennybags Q: Let's face it, Neil Armstrong hasn't really been out there sharing his experiences and promoting the space program over the last 40 years. Buzz has. Armstrong pretty much retired from public except for very rare appearances.

A: Armstrong has shared his experiences. He was interviewed by Eric Jones for the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal. He was interviewed in September 2001 for NASA's Oral History Project. He was interviewed for Andrew Chaikin's excellent book "A Man On The Moon" and excerpts from those interviews appear in Chaikin's more recent book "Voices From The Moon." He worked with James R. Hansen to publish an official biography in 2005 called "First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong." He was interviewed on 60 Minutes in 2005 as well. Last year, he appeared in the miniseries "When We Left Earth" on the Discovery Channel. Armstrong is known for being a private man and wanting to keep to himself. He's also modest about his achievements, which is admirable. Still, he has made plenty of public statements about Apollo 11.

What makes buzz aldrin a hero? by AnNa Q: I am doing an english pj and i have to write a speech on why buzz aldrin is a hero so plz help.

A: First, you need to define what a hero is. The literal meaning of "hero" is "protector", "defender" or "guardian". A more modern usage of hero refers to people that, in the face of danger or from a position of weakness, display courage and the will for self sacrifice ("heroism") for some greater good. Does Buzz Aldrin meet these parameters? Perhaps, since landing on the moon was a dangerous situation, and Aldrin and Armstrong displayed courage for the greater good of the advancement of science. But for your speech, you need to fill in details, such as examples of heroes and what Aldrin did to demonstrate heroism.

Why is Buzz Aldrin the best rapper alive instead of Lil Wayne? by America 101 Q: Aldrin's new song 'Rocket Experience' produced by Snoop Dogg is amazing and sure to top the charts soon. How could anyone say that he is not the best rapper alive and that Lil Wayne is just a scrub compared to him?

A: It's a great song. I've heard it on youtube. ALL YA NEED IS A ROCKET EXPERIENCE. Flyin into outerspaace

Why did Neil get to step on the moon first and not Buzz Aldrin? by Q: Why did Neil Armstrong get to be the first person on the moon? Why didn't Buzz Aldrin? Or couldn't they have done it at the same time? It made Neil A huge star and everyone now knows his name. They don't know Buzz as well.

A: There are big controversy even at that time as to who would actually land on the moon first. Buzz and his family campaigned hard to get the NASA to select him as the first person. Buzz came from a influential military family. And the fact that he was a navy pilot was one of the greatest selling points. But NASA was eager for the public to accept the organization and thus they decided to go with Armstrong, civilian pilot. Armstrong was also a better pilot and much better docking pilot and was the commander of the unit. As a leader and the commander of the unit, he was the obvious choice despite pressure of Aldrin and his family and the military. I disagree that Armstrong is more popular than Buzz. After leaving NASA Armstrong become reclusive while Buzz become a star spokesperson for NASA. Buzz Aldrin is more popular and well known than Armstrong today.

Why do I hear so much more about Buzz Aldrin than Neil Armstrong? by Francophile Q: Its kind of embarrassing but until recently i always assumed Neil Armstrong had passed away awhile ago because i never see him on the news or giving interviews of any kind. I try to stay well-read, but i admit this one stumps me. Anyone care to explain why i hear so much more about the number two guy than the first man on the moon (not that Buzz Aldrin deserves any less)?

A: Neil Armstrong has a reputation as a private man who likes to keep to himself; he doesn't do as much publicity as other astronauts, but he hasn't vanished either. He was interviewed by Eric Jones for the Apollo Lunar Surface, by Stephen Ambrose and Douglas Brinkley for NASA's Oral History Project, and by Andrew Chaikin for the book "A Man On The Moon." He worked with James R. Hansen on an official biography called "First Man: The Life Of Neil A. Armstrong" that was published in 2005 and he was interviewed on 60 Minutes that year too. Last year, he appeared in the mini-series "When We Left Earth" on the Discovery Channel. He made a public appearance in Dayton Ohio just this Friday. He is modest though and has said he shouldn't get all the credit for Apollo 11's success since there were so many people involved in the program. Armstrong was a military test pilot before he joined NASA as most astronauts were in those days. When other Apollo astronauts talk about why they became astronauts, they usually say they wanted a new challenge. They don't say it was because they wanted to be famous.

how did Buzz Aldrin feel about the nasa program? by bloom14u Q: i have a project due tomorow, April 22, and i need to know how buzz aldrin felt about being in the nasa program?

A: he thinks it is repressive and slow, and unflexible.

Why does Buzz Aldrin say there is a monolith on the planet mars? by Q: Buzz Aldrin says there is a monolith on mars. Any ideas? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDIXvpjnRws Indiana - I hate to break this to you, but the youtube video is showing Buzz Aldrin in person talking directly to the camera telling us there is a monolith on mars.

A: It's not just on youtube. There are a lot of articles out there talking about the monolith on mars even with pitures. Mars isn't the only pace like that either. Our moon also has strange figurations on it as well. A lot of googleing and reading and you can find out a lot of cool information. Below are a few places you might be interested looking at. There are lots more but don't have them saved in favorites on this computer.

What is the interview where Buzz Aldrin talks about aliens? by Appless Q: I saw this a long time ago but cant seem to find it anywhere on the web again, it was an audio recording of Buzz Aldrin talking about how he saw and knew alien life had been discovered, I am not talking about the flying object they saw in space, which was one of the panels from the spacecraft but this was a completely different interview. Thanks

A: Are you talking about Ed Mitchell? He went mad :( Or perhaps you are referring to the faked transcript of a non-existent conversation between Aldrin and Armstrong?

Why is it that Buzz Aldrin gets more airtime than Neil Armstrong? by rashad_khalifa Q: In all types of media coverage, Buzz Aldrin is interviewed, featured, mentioned etc much more than Neil Armstrong. Armstrong was the first man on the moon, however Aldrin is used and gets much more airplay than Armstrong. In fact I can not find much about Armstrong on line. If you believe you can shed some light on this please do.

A: Armstrong was just a civilian; whereas Aldrin was military so he actually knows things

Is it true that Buzz Aldrin had a religious breakthrough, or a nervous breakdown after he walked on the moon? by joey j Q: I heard that Buzz Aldrin became 'odd' after his walk on the moon, triggered by an emotional or religious breakthrough, from seeing the earth from so far away. Has anyone heard this and is it confirmed? Did he have a spiritual or emotional upheaval?

A: No. He was already religious, and had planned a little ceremony:

How long did it take Buzz Aldrin to rotate around the earth? by Shark Q: When Buzz Aldrin first took his trips around the Earth how long did it take for one full rotation around the Earth?

A: Hello Sharkey, This is a teeny nitpick...nobody *rotated* around the Earth, they orbited around the Earth. To rotate implies that something is spinning on its axis (like a top), but to orbit or revolve means that one thing is moving around another object, like the Moon and satellites do to the Earth. As somebody else correctly pointed out, it takes about 90 minutes to completely revolve around the Earth in low orbit. You should give that person Best Answer...just remember what I said, okay? Good luck to you!

When between Apollo XI and today did Buzz Aldrin first say he thought the ufo they had seen was just a panel? by jrels2 Q: During the Apollo 11 flight to the moon Buzz Aldrin claimed that he and Niel Armstrong had seen a strange UFO alongside their capsule. It appears to me that for some time, perhaps since the 70's, Buzz has been making this claim that they had seen a UFO that they could not explain, but only recently in 2007 is he now saying that they were 99.9% sure it was just a panel from their own equipment. Am I right in this assumption?

A: I didn't hear about Buzz Aldrin's 2007 retraction, but it seems logical. After all, a UFO would have come from some planet other than Earth. The significance of this fact is that the alleged "UFO" was following the same trajectory and speed as the Apollo spacecraft. A object from a planet other than Earth should have been following a different trajectory (since it was coming from a different direction) than the Apollo spacecraft, and would have been traveling at a different speed, since it would have come from another star that would be much father away than the Earth was from the moon. So the object Buzz saw must have been part of the Apollo spacecraft.

Buzz Aldrin? by pumpkins. Q: What are the important details Buzz Aldrin did?

A: He did his masters thesis at MIT on orbital rendezvous, and when he became a NASA astronaut, he proved that men can work well in microgravity in Earth orbit on Gemini 12. HIs work on Apollo 11, as Lunar Module Pilot ( A mild misnomer, as the LMP actually didn't fly the LM; the commander did ) he helped guide Neil Armstrong's landing on the Moon. Buzz then was the second human to walk on the Moon. It also ended up being that, of all 12 men to walk on the Moon, he did so for less time than any of the other 11. More recently, he has published several books, both about his experiences in the space program, and of science fiction. When a Moon landing denier, Bart Siebrel, tried to accost Buzz, his persistance caused Buzz to deck Siebrel. A court that looked into that punch found that Aldrin was justified in doing so.
