Astronaut Buzz Aldrin Set to Speak in Bismarck on July 13th
The second man to ever set foot on the moon, astronaut Buzz Aldrin, will set foot in Bismarck on Monday, July 13th.
Aldrin is set to speak at the Council of State Government Midwest Legislative Conference. He'll also be signing copies of his 2013 book 'Mission to Mars,' according to InForum.
Aldrin's speech is entitled 'Look to the Stars.' CSGMidwest.org has the following bio to go along with Aldrin's speech announcement:
After flying combat missions in Korea and serving a tour of duty for the U.S. Air Force in Germany, Buzz Aldrin was selected as part of the country’s third group of astronauts in 1963. It was the start of a historic career at NASA that would change this country and the world. In 1966, he performed the world’s first successful spacewalk; three years later, he and Neil Armstrong made their historic Apollo 11 moonwalk, becoming the first two humans to set foot on another world. Since retiring from NASA and the U.S. Air Force, Col. Aldrin has remained at the forefront of efforts to ensure America’s continued leadership in human space exploration. He is also committed to inspiring younger generations of future explorers and innovators.
Aldrin will speak during Monday, July 13th's luncheon. You can get more details HERE.
