Apollo 11 Moon-walker Buzz Aldrin talks about the future of space flight.
After spending 290 hours in space, including several hours on the Moon's surface as part of the historic Apollo 11 mission, you would think Buzz Aldrin would be content to pursue more earthly objectives. You'd be wrong. Aldrin continues to think about space exploration, what our goals should be, and the roles humans and robots should play.
Astronomy interviewed Aldrin at the iHobby Expo in Chicago in October 2004. We talked for more than 90 minutes and produced more than 7,000 words. Many of those appeared in the May article. Here you'll find the rest of the story.
