Buzz Aldrin sends message from Stonehenge

The legendary astronaut tweeted a light-hearted picture encouraging a manned trip to Mars.
Having been the second human ever to set foot on the surface of another world as part of the historic Apollo 11 mission, Buzz Aldrin is no stranger to the concept of human spaceflight.

For years he has keenly encouraged the exploration of other worlds and believes that sending humans to the Red Planet is a crucial next step towards turning mankind in to a two-planet species. He also believes that commercial development of both the moon and the asteroid belt will prove advantageous.
This week the 85-year-old made headlines after uploading a photo of himself at Stonehenge while wearing a shirt featuring a light-hearted message of support for a manned mission to Mars.



With any luck the dream of our species spreading across the stars will one day become a reality.

I think Buzz know's a lot more about the ET/UFO phenomena that he cares allowed to talk about. I think Buzz has been past the point of giving a damn what he is allowed or not allowed to do for quite some time.

I think Buzz has been past the point of giving a damn what he is allowed or not allowed to do for quite some time. Sure A1, and rightly so. He has earned that choice of whether giving a damn or not at his age.I guess when it comes down to our mortality...we can make peace with ourselves, loved ones, and even the world, in our own unique and private way. But there are also some things that we may choose to take to our graves - for reasons that the individual alone - only understands. Btw, I'm speaking in general here.

Buzz, you are so awesome, even in your age. I agree, though, that he does know more than he lets on. Perhaps he'll release a tell-all before his time on Earth is over.
