One giant leap for mankind! Dr. Andy Aldrin

One giant leap for mankind! 47 years ago today Apollo 11 was the first spaceflight that landed humans on the Moon. On July 20th, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to set foot on another world. A couple of fun things to share today as we recognize this significant achievement.

As I was spending time with good friend Dr. Andy Aldrin (Buzz’s son) today, it seemed a good idea to capture a short video with him. Andy is a swell fellow. A space AND oceans guy. Andy is the Director of the Buzz Aldrin Space Institute at the Florida Institute of Technology where he also serves as an Associate Professor. It's fun to hear him talk about his perspective as a young boy when his dad walked on the Moon. He’s up to some cool stuff. NOTE: I have no idea why I said July 12th when I meant to say July 20th. :)
