Buzz Aldrin Interview


“And as the astronauts later sat in the “Eagle”, waiting to begin their journey back home, knowing that they were doomed unless every system and part on board worked flawlessly, it was Aldrin who responded to mission control’s clearance to take off with the quip, “Roger.  Understand.  We’re number one on the runway.”  This passage from Buzz Aldrin’s memoir, “Magnificent Desolation, “ is part of the humor that came out when I interviewed him for my Radio Show at Barnes & Noble Super Store in New York City recently.  Hear the rest of the interview and be charmed by the second man ever to walk on the surface of the moon.
