I just want to say I thoroughly enjoyed the lecture. I have seen and met Buzz on a number of occasions but this was only the second time that I attended a lecture.

Obviously we are familiar with most of his life story but still, reading about it or even hearing him talk about it on TV is not the same as hearing it straight from Buzz himself.

I thought the funniest remark was when he said he and Neil had sadly missed the opportunity to speak the immortal words "Houston, we have a problem" when they discovered that he had broken the ascent engine's circuit breaker.

To me the biggest surprise of the lecture was not so much what he said but seeing him with a beard.

In case you missed it, search for "Buzz Aldrin Speyer" on YouTube.

All in all, well worth the 500 km ride. Thank you very much for this great opportunity, Gerhard, and I just hope there will be an encore or two!

Thank you very much BA002 for your kind words. Buzz was in great shape and enjoyed the tour and time at Europe's biggest space exhibition for manned space flight "Apollo and Beyond" very much.

The event was outstanding with more than 600 people in the audience. Buzz was great during his presentation and talked much longer as expected. He is a great ambassador, pioneer and icon for manned space flight!

I enjoyed very much working with him for a second time after the DLR book project back in April 2008.

Thanks to everybody who came to his speech. Some drove a few hundred kilometers and I appreciate that very much! This is the kind of support I Need to execute such an event!
