Buzz Aldrin & Alan Shepard
Buzz Aldrin, Sc.D. (born Edwin Eugene Aldrin, Jr., January 20, 1930) is an American mechanical engineer, retired United States Air Force pilot and astronaut who was the lunar module pilot on Apollo 11, the first manned lunar landing in history. Alan Bartlett Shepard, Jr. (November 18, 1923 – July 21, 1998) was an American naval aviator, test pilot, flag officer, and NASA astronaut who in 1961 became the second person, and the first American, in space./5

Neil Armstrong is an American Hero, so was Buzz Aldrin, Pete Conrad, Alan Bean, Alan Shepard, Edgar Mitchell, the list goes on
At the age of 77, who became the oldest man to fly in space?. John Glenn . Buzz Aldrin . Alan Shepard . Neil...
They say the sky is the limit. False. Tell that to Yuri Gagarin, Valentina Tereshkova, Neil Armstrong, Alan Shepard & Buzz Aldrin.
Buzz Aldrin explains why Alan Shepard was the first american to fly into space: "First they planned to send an ape but NASA got tons of letters from animal rights activists in defense of apes and no letters in defense of Alan. So Alan flew."
Answer to Thursday's First in History: Who made the first walk on the moon? Answer: Neil Armstrong On July 21, 1969, Neil Armstrong made history by becoming the first person to set foot on the Moon. He was soon followed by Buzz Aldrin. Armstrong had to manually fly the Lunar Module past the intended landing spot, which he could see was filled with boulders. He landed safely in Tranquility Base with Aldrin keeping an eye on the altitude and velocity, along with a dangerously low fuel tank. In total, Neil and Buzz were on the lunar surface (both inside their Eagle lunar module and walking on the Moon) for only 21 hours, 36 minutes and 21 seconds and were outside walking in the Sea of Tranquility for just 2 hours, 31 minutes and 40 seconds. Ask someone if they know the names of the astronauts who have walked on the Moon, and most people would be able to list Neil Armstrong, and maybe even Buzz Aldrin. But can you name the rest of the Apollo astronauts who made it down to the lunar surface? In total twelve pe ...
You guys are heroes. We need to expand SPACE exploration... Make a DETERMINED effort to land HUMAN explorers on Mars. Not only will it further human reach into the universe, but itll advance our technology akin to the Apollo program and itll give a much needed boost to our economy. Neil Armstrong (rest in peace) along with Buzz Aldrin, Alan Shepard and Jim Lovell are true American Heroes, and their successors continue to live up to their legacy. Go NASA! :)
would you consider Neil Armstrong & Buzz Aldrin the princes of all astronaut behind Alan B Shepard, first american in space
K.so far I have seen pics of Buzz Aldrin, Alan Shepard, Pete Conrad, Al Bean and Edgar Mitchell all with the caption "Neil Armstrong". Please folks, there are plenty of pics of Neil out there taken during his Gemini mission and training but none taken of him actually on the Moon(with the exception of a couple stills from the LEM mounted video cameras). You do a disservice to him and the other 11 Men that walked on the Moon.
As space exploration has become more common and the number of astronauts has risen past 300, many names have faded into the background. But some will forever be associated with the golden age of space exploration. Some examples: From 1969's Apollo 11, the first manned moon landing mission: — Buzz Aldrin: Lunar module pilot for Apollo 11. Second man on the moon after commander Neil Armstrong. Left NASA in in 1971 and returned to Air Force. Wrote several books including "Return to Earth" and "Men from Earth." Advocate for future U.S. space exploration and frequent lecturer. Age: 82. — Neil Armstrong: Commander of Apollo 11 mission and first human to set foot on the moon. Left NASA in 1971, taught engineering at the University of Cincinnati, and later became chairman of electronic systems companies. Died Aug. 25 at age 82. — Michael Collins: Command module pilot on Apollo 11 and circled the moon while colleagues Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed. Left NASA in 1970 and became first director of the S ...
With the death of Neil Armstrong I am now more animate about striking Columbus's name from Columbus day, turning it into a international Holiday, and naming it Explorers Day. Columbus does not deserve recognition because he was a *** and creep. But instead have the day to honor those who risked and gave their lives in the pursuit of exploration, both living and dead regardless of nation. Marco Polo, James L. Cook, Lewis and Clark, Yuri Gagarin, Alan Shepard, John Glenn, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Sally Ride, the crew of the USS Challanger, to name a few. I would love to see that happen.
I remember when Neil Armstrong was an American Hero. Now the heroes and role models are athletes and reality TV stars. How many of those born after '69 are wondering if we really went to the moon, or if Neil was, like, related to Lance. I miss the day when a hero was someone like Alan Shepard, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Michael Collins...
