Buzz Aldrin’s Iconic Career as an Astronaut
In addition to his successful career as an astronaut, Buzz Aldrin is also a family man. He has three children – James, Janice, and Andrew – with his first wife Joan Ann, as well as one grandson, three great-grandsons, and one great-granddaughter.
Aldrin’s legacy as an astronaut was cemented when he, along with fellow astronauts Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins, took part in the historic Apollo 11 lunar mission in July 1969. The mission made him the second man to set foot on the moon and he is the last of the three Apollo 11 astronauts still alive today.
After retiring from NASA in July 1971, Aldrin went on to serve as commandant of the Aerospace Research Pilot School at Edwards Air Force Base in California. Speaking in 2009, he reflected on the significance of his time as an astronaut, saying, “People want us in a few words to generate the enthusiasm that the world had as they contemplated what we were about to do. Well, what it felt like is something that we trained for. We were trying to treat it as calmly as we could and perform to the best of our ability.”
