Buzz Aldrin writes with the passion of a man who has traveled to the moon.
In this National Geographic book, he sees humans on Mars in the 2030s and boldly advocates continuing exploration of our solar system at a time when America stands at a critical crossroads in its space program. He outlines past triumphs, analyzes recent setbacks, and cheers us on to greater accomplishments, with a message that will ignite a new wave of support and participation across the country for a renewed and ambitious space program.
Our journeys into space can once more capture the imagination of new generations of scientists, engineers, astronauts, and the general public.

Absolutely. I get that some people here have issues with Buzz's promotional practices, but he's also been one of the very few Golden Age astronauts to combine vision, intellect, and and media savvy. I wish more of those pioneers were as willing to engage with the popular culture as he is.
