The first man to walk on the moon, Buzz Armstrong, is considered one of the greatest astronauts ever to walk the planet.
Now, he is also remembered as one of Earth’s greatest explorers, and this week marks the 20th anniversary of his landing.
Buzz Aldreischer was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1937.
He attended Columbia University in New York City and earned a bachelor’s degree in physics from the University of Chicago in 1959.
Buzz became a member of the American Astronomical Society in 1963, and later became a founding member of NASA.
He later became chairman of the Apollo Lunar Landing Program, the organization responsible for the Apollo missions to the moon.
In 1976, Buzz made the trip to the Moon.
It was the first time humans had walked on the lunar surface, and it would become the benchmark for the first human mission to Mars.
Buzz’s first mission to the lunar landscape came in 1975.
He had to use the Lunar Module, which was powered by a Soviet-built engine.
He walked on it for more than two months, using a robotic arm to get his footing on the surface.
The lunar module was made of a mixture of lightweight aluminum and titanium, and was propelled by an American engine.
In the final days of the mission, a piece of the lunar module fell off and crashed.
Buzz said he felt a strong tug on the module.
Buzz was wearing a helmet with a solar array attached to it, which allowed him to see the moon from above.
Afterward, he was able to observe the moon with a pair of binoculars and a lunar module, which he had used to view Earth from orbit.
Buzz later said that it was one of his greatest experiences.
Buzz and his wife, Linda, have three daughters, and his grandchildren have also been astronauts.
Buzz joined NASA in 1969.
He went to the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, and then went to Stanford University in California.
After he returned to the U.S., he began working for Lockheed Martin.
He became the first man in space on July 14, 1972.
On March 5, 1974, Buzz became the third man to make the first ascent to the International Space Station.
His record-breaking mission was completed on July 28, 1976.
In June 1983, Buzz and Linda, along with their daughter, were honored by the NASA Medal of Freedom for their work on the Apollo 17 mission.
They were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal for their accomplishments.
They are the only American to have received the medal.
In 2010, the Buzz and Lulu family donated their land to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
Buzz is survived by his wife Linda and three children.
His wife Linda died in 2011 at the age of 90.
His son-in-law, Don Johnson, also died in 2010.
A memorial service will be held in Los Angeles on March 15, 2019.
The mission will be the last for Buzz Alderson.
It will be his final public appearance before he dies, and the last time we will see him in public.
A number of other astronauts have also passed away in recent years, including Apollo 11 astronaut James Lovell, who became the youngest man to fly to the space station in 1962, and Apollo 11 crew member Rick Mastracchio, who died in 2014.
