BuzzAldrin journeyed to the moon with Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins in July 1969, and together their Apollo 11 flight created one of history’s most indelible moments. In the years since, Aldrin has become a passionate advocate for returning to space and rekindling America’s ambition to explore the outer limits. To accomplish that goal, he said, the U.S. can’t do it alone, and the country should dream bigger than the moon. At the 2016 Forbes Philanthropy Summit, Aldrin spoke with Steve Forbes about his career at NASA, space exploration and the possibility of life elsewhere in the galaxy.
