Buzz Aldrin Biography

Buzz Aldrin was the second human to walk on the moon. On July 20, 1969, he followed Neil Armstrong onto the lunar surface while a third American astronaut, Michael Collins, remained in orbit overhead. Aldrin attended West Point, flew fighter jets in the Korean War, and then earned a doctorate in astronautics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) before joining the NASA astronaut corps in October of 1963. He flew on the Gemini 12 space mission (launched 11 November 1966) and then was chosen as the lunar module pilot for Apollo 11, the first manned mission to the surface of the moon. The success of Apollo 11 made Aldrin, Armstrong and Collins international heroes. Since his retirement from NASA, Aldrin has been an unabashed booster for space exploration. He founded Starcraft Boosters, a private rocket design firm. His autobiography, Return to Earth was published in 1973. He also wrote the sci-fi novels Encounter With Tiber (1996) and The Return(2000).

Early life
Aldrin was born in Glen Ridge, New Jersey,to Edwin Eugene Aldrin, Sr. (1896–1974), a career military man, and his wife Marion (ne Moon; 1903–1968).He is of Scottish, Swedish,and German ancestry. After graduating from Montclair High School in 1946, Aldrin turned down a full scholarship offer from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and went to the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York. The nickname "Buzz" originated in childhood: the younger of his two elder sisters (Fay Ann) mispronounced "brother" as "buzzer", and this was shortened to Buzz. Aldrin made it his legal first name in 1988

Personal life
Aldrin has been married three times: to Joan Archer, the mother of his three children, James Aldrin, Janice Aldrin, and Andrew Aldrin; to Beverly Zile; and to Lois Driggs Cannon from whom he is recently divorced. He has one grandson, Jeffrey Schuss, born to his daughter, Jan. He filed for divorce from Lois on June 15, 2011, in Los Angeles, citing "irreconcilable differences", according to his attorney, one day after the couple separated.The divorce was final on December 28, 2012.

His battles against depression and alcoholism have been documented, most recently in Magnificent Desolation.Aldrin is an active supporter of the Republican Party, headlining fundraisers for GOP members of Congress.In 2007, Aldrin confirmed to Time magazine that he had recently had a face-lift;he joked that the G-forces he was exposed to in space "caused a sagging jowl that needed some attention."

Aldrin commented on the passing of his Apollo 11 colleague, Neil Armstrong, by saying that he was "deeply saddened by the passing. I know I am joined by millions of others in mourning the passing of a true American hero and the best pilot I ever knew. I had truly hoped that on July 20th, 2019, Neil, Mike and I would be standing together to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of our moon landing... Regrettably, this is not to be."

Aldrin is a Freemason, a member of Montclair Lodge # 144 of New Jersey.
