Buzz Aldrin, Welcome to Mars

Aiming for up front seating at the Buzz Aldrin event at Cradle of Aviation Museum this past Saturday, Bob and I arrived at CAM well over an hour early. Waiting on line wasn’t bad, though, since I got to chat with a really nice family whose son wore an astronaut suit to see his hero in person.

Garden City, New York, USA. October 23, 2015. Former NASA astronaut Edwin BUZZ ALDRIN is in conversation about his experiences in space and his new Children's Middle Grade book Welcome to Mars: Making a Home on the Red Planet. After the talk at the jetBlue Sky Theater Planetarium at Long Island's Cradle of Aviation Museum, Aldrin signed copies of his new book. On the 1969 Apollo 11 mission, Buzz Aldrin was the second person to walk on the Moon, and his first trip to space was the 1966 Gemini 12. (Ann Parry/Ann Parry, ann-parry.com)

In the jetBlue Sky Theater Planetarium, ‘The Real Buzz’ had a conversation with his Mission Director, Christina Korp, and had time to answer several questions from children in the audience.

Then, Aldrin left the theater to sign copies of his new book Welcome to Mars: Making a Home on the Red Planet, a National Geographic Kids book geared for Middle Grade children. And where was the book signing?  CAM’s Red Planet Cafe!
