Paris Air Show: Buzz Aldrin visits Flightglobal saying that Moon should not be NASA’s main exploration target

by | Jun 19, 2013 | Apollo, exploration, History | 0 comments

Legendary Apollo 11 astronaut who flew with Neil Armstrong to walk on the surface of the Moon  in July 1969, made an almost equally as important visit when he joined the team at Flightglobal’s chalet at the Paris Air Show. While Space is usually a tad subdued at this mainly aviation event, it is good to see Buzz flying the flag for manned space exploration.  Buzz appears to be strongly convinced that the Moon should just be a stepping stone to the exploration of other planets rather than a principal destination for NASA.

Video of his interview is on our space page http://www.seradata.com/tag/space/
