Buzz Aldrin is the second man to set foot on the Moon and the first to walk successfully in space. Together with Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins, he was part of the successful and historic Apollo 11 mission, which culminated in man's arrival on the Moon in July 1969. Aldrin was the second man to step on the surface of the planet, becoming a recognized figure in history and science. Aldrin's name has since been linked to this epoch-making event, which ended with the victory of the United States in its space race with the Soviet Union.

In 1971, Buzz Aldrin left NASA to become commander of the US Air Force Test Pilot School at Edwards Air Force Base in California.

Previously, in 1963, Aldrin earned a PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), when he became a NASA astronaut, joining the Gemini XII mission in 1966, a space flight within the Gemini Program. Previously, Buzz Aldrin graduated from West Point Military Academy as a U.S. Air Force Pilot after fighting in the Korean War.

Buzz Aldrin is the founder of the ShareSpace Foundation, through which he promotes space exploration by inspiring future generations of explorers through Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics (STEAM).

He is the author of two autobiographies, Return to Earth and Magnificent Desolation: The Long Journey Home from the Moon. He is also the author of the books Men from Earth, Reaching for the Moon, Look to the Stars, Mission to Mars: My Vision for Space Exploration and No Dream Is Too High: Life Lessons from a Man Who Walked on the Moon.

In his conferences, Buzz Aldrin explains to global audiences through his incredible experiences walking on the Moon that no dream is too big, and that everything can be achieved through teamwork and leadership, encouraging others to reach for the stars in their lives.
