Astronaut BUZZ ALDRIN lectured, with focus on Mars exploration, and then signed books at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City, NY, this Saturday, May 11, 2013.
After a conversation with DICK DUNNE at the Sold Out lecture in the JetBlue Sky Theater Planetarium, Aldrin – whose twitter handle is TheRealBuzz – autographed copies of his new book Mission to Mars and his history of space illustrated by Wendell Minor, Look to the Stars, in CAM’s LEM room.
Long Island’s Grumman Aerospace Corporation built and tested both the LM-13 Aldrin signed books in front of, and the Eagle LM-5 used during NASA’s Apollo 11 mission in 1969, when Aldrin was the second person to walk on the moon.
