[b]Buzz Aldrin to Visit Kansas Cosmosphere for "Mission To Mars" Book Signing[/b]
In a first-ever appearance at the world-renowned space museum, Buzz Aldrin, an American astronaut and one of the first men to walk on the Moon, will visit the [URL=http://www.cosmo.org/newsroom/ne_nw_article.cfm?id=183]Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center[/URL] August 24, 2013, and will be signing his book, "Mission to Mars."
In "Mission to Mars," legendary "space statesman" Buzz Aldrin speaks out as a vital advocate for the continuing quest to push the boundaries of the universe as we know it. As a pioneering astronaut who first set foot on the Moon during mankind's first landing of Apollo 11 – and as an aerospace engineer who designed an orbital rendezvous technique critical to future planetary landings – Aldrin has a vision, and in this book he plots out the path he proposes, taking humans to Mars by 2035.
Aldrin will be appearing August 24, 2013, from 1pm to 3pm in the Hall of Space Museum's Apollo Gallery to sign copies of Mission to Mars. Visitors must purchase a copy/copies of Mission to Mars at the Cosmosphere and a Hall of Space admission is required. Advance purchases of Mission to Mars will also require a receipt and advance orders will be available for pickup at the signing.
"It will be a great honor to welcome Aldrin, a pioneer of space exploration, to share his vision and advocacy to push toward new boundaries," said Richard Hollowell, Cosmosphere CEO. "At the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center, our mission is to 'honor the past and inspire the future of space exploration.' We do this on a daily basis as we welcome visitors to our Hall of Space galleries, educate and entertain children on field trips and, through our STEM-based Camp KAOS programs. Aldrin's visit places a very large exclamation point on the importance of our mission."
