The Explorers Club will be open from 4pm to 7pm on Sunday, 5/12
Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin was the second man on the moon, 19 minutes behind the late Neil Armstrong. That was July 20, 1969.
Decades later Aldrin continues to reach for the stars - literally. In 1996, he wrote a science fiction novel, "Encounter with Tiber," and in 2010 competed on the television show "Dancing with the Stars." Most importantly, he has continued to be a vocal advocate for space exploration.
Aldrin now has a plan to get humans to Mars by 2035, and he will discuss this vision with interviewer Jim Clash. After the chat, Aldrin will sign copies of his new book "Mission to Mars" (National Geographic, May 2013).
