Buzz Aldrin on the moon 50 years laterThe Honorable Newt Gingrich
By Newt Gingrich (Original source Fox News)
“Buzz Aldrin has been a close friend of mine for many years. He is an American icon and hero, who will forever be remembered as one of the few Americans who took the first small steps into the next era of humankind.
I am very glad to say, ahead of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, that I was able to speak with Buzz on this week’s episode of my “Newt’s World” podcast.
Despite having had many conversations with Buzz over the course of my time in Congress and afterward, I was able to learn a great deal about his past military experience, his work with NASA, and what he has been doing since.
Buzz shared with me some experiences and insights you don’t often hear about – such as how his time flying F-86s in the Korean War helped to prepare him for some of the challenges he faced in the Gemini 12 and Apollo 11 missions.”
