Example text

Innovators and explorers like to ponder what might be possible, not merely what is expected. That’s why I try to stay open to new ideas. I’m constantly dreaming up new things, sketching new rocket designs, and looking for new areas to explore. ” In fact, one of the awards of which I am most proud is the Lifetime Innovation Achievement Award I received in 2015 from New Jersey, the state where I lived as a boy. ” The answer is yes. ” No doubt, over the years, a few people have called me “Buzzard,” but from the time I was a baby, the name Buzz has been a part of my life.

Even wonderfully brilliant people can become entrenched in the status quo, stuck in the usual way of doing things. ” So we’ve never done it that way before? Great! Let’s try something new; let’s come up with a different approach, another way of reaching our goals. You have to stay open to the possibilities. Remember, your mind is like a parachute: If it isn’t open, it doesn’t work. So keep an open mind! It was a man with an open mind who made it physically possible for human beings to land on the Moon.

He can be mildly irreverent, and he is one of the funniest people ever to walk on Earth or on the Moon. Many people know Buzz from Apollo 11; others know him from his passionate speeches motivating the next generation of explorers to get their asses to Mars. Some people don’t understand him when he speaks, but I know him well enough to be able to fill in the blanks. Some of the stories he is about to share, I’ve heard him tell many times; others are brand new, even to me. In the pages ahead, I’m excited for you to meet the Buzz Aldrin that I know.
