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.
