Dancing with the Stars: Buzz Aldrin

Buzz Aldrin, 80, is not merely the second human ever to set foot on the lunar surface. He is an iconic image of the United States space program.
He remains an outspoken supporter of manned spaceflight; has supported Obama's plan to scrap the Constellation Project in favor of a Mars mission; and firmly believes Space exploration is not simply a luxury, it's a necessity for the continued existence of humankind.

So, the fact he is, at this very moment, a contestant on ABC's 'Dancing with the Stars' is not just a publicity stunt worth watching. It's a testament to his unwavering spirit and determination, and his ability, even now, to capture the imagination of all Americans and once again lead us into the great unknown.

Good luck Aldrin!!
