Category: Buzz Aldrin

Shortly after returning from the moon, Buzz Aldrin began to suffer from alcoholism and depression. “I wanted to resume my duties, but there were no duties to resume. There was no goal, no sense of calling, no project worth pouring myself into.”

The song Fly Me to the Moon was the first music ever heard and played on the Moon, when Buzz Aldrin played it on a cassette tape.

This is Michael Collins, the forgotten astronaut of Apollo 11, who waited for Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin above the lunar surface and was the one who brought them back to Earth safely. He never stepped on the moon.

Buzz Aldrin’s mother’s maiden name was Moon. source
