Mission to Mars: My Vision for Space Exploration by Buzz Aldrin
Can astronauts reach Mars by 2035? Absolutely, says Buzz Aldrin, one of the first men to walk on the moon.
Celebrated astronaut, brilliant engineer, bestselling author Aldrin believes it is not only possible but vital to America's future to keep pushing the space frontier outward for the sake of exploration, science, development, commerce, and security. He argues that what we need is a commitment by the U.S. President as rousing as JFK's promise to reach the moon by the end of the 1960s--an audacious, inspiring goal-and a unified vision for space exploration. In Mission to Mars, Aldrin plots that trajectory, stressing that American-led space exploration is essential to the economic and technological vitality of the nation and the world.
