We came in peace....

July 4th. Royal Festival Hall.
Buzz Aldrin: well that was great, I was worried it might be a bit odd, never meet your heroes and that but the whole thing was friendly and warm .

Buzz was eloquent and interesting and didn't seem to be going through the motions.

His book seems to be full of stuff like this that points as to why he ended up going to the moon and well I haven't
"amazingly, I found it relatively easy in our artificial environment
(to sleep). It hardly occurred to me that just an inch away, outside the
thin wall of metallic alloy, was a deadly, vast,airless vacuum."
Thanks to SA for the photo, the moon below is the marvellous lampshade Buzz "designed" for Habititat,
