Moon-walker Aldrin: Mars an ‘island awaiting us in the blackness of space’

A permanent settlement should be established on Mars rather than making it a place to just visit, said Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon.

Aldrin was speaking at the Technion–Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa last week as part of the SSP2016 session held there by the International Space University. A West Point graduate and former fighter pilot, he is currently serving as chancellor of the ISU. The lecture was dedicated to the memory of Gerald Soffen, one of the ISU’s biggest supporters.
