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 set foot on the moon during mankind's first landing with Apollo 11–and an aerospace engineer who designed an orbital rendezvous technique critical to future planetary landings–Aldrin has a vision, and in Mission to Mars he plots out the path he proposes, one that will take humans to Mars by 2035.
