  • the only way we can ever get back into the space race is if we take our military side of the industry and turn it into something that gets us off this planet. If we don't kill ourselves first.

    • @absu69 Colonisation is the only way to ensure to almost guarantee mans existence in the universe (by man I mean men of Earth origin).
      One giant meteorstrike or cataclysmic event will wipe us from the universe, never to be seen again, which actually might be the greatest thing that could ever happen...

    • @Zombiespit The greatest thing that could ever happen, yet, you don't commit suicide? Seems to be some holes in the logic there.

  • He's an eloquent speaker and advocate of man's exploration of space (plus he's BEEN there and walked the moon, so he knows better than you or I) but he needs to get real and understand the financial implications, i.e. the economy. There will likely never again be a government sponsored major space initiative such as Gemini/Apollo. Such programs officially ended with Discovery landing in Dulles the other day to find its new home in the Smithsonian. Now it's all about private funding and small More..

    • @Panthera "There will likely never again be a government sponsored major space initiative such as Gemini/Apollo." Get a little bit into why that won't happen. We keep pumping billions into the military every year. Why not take a good portion of that put it into space exploration. NASA is nothing but a a department of DoD and other corporate "defense" companies.
      What changed that? What changed the thinking?
      I think with the commercialization of it comes the profit driven think More..

    • @absu69 Simply put, the US Gov't/NASA are terribly inefficient with taxpayers $. Yes, a lot of good came out of NASA, and they led the way for commercial entities today, but today commercial entities can do the same stuff NASA was doing decades ago for a fraction of the cost. As long as there is a vision on how to get a return on the money spent then space exploration is going to become much more commercialized and much less science/knowledge based. There will always be "probes" and ne More..

    • @Ace25 how are private companies any better with something like the space program? I would assume since it would be a cost plus contract it would be terribly wasteful?

    • @absu69 Great analysis -.a combination of smaller government, diminished sense of awe following the mundane series of launches in the latter days of Apollo, and earthbound economic influence. All these helped to make NASA insignificant compared to its glory days, too.

  • This video was taken WAY out of context. Shame on you for trying to make him look like a complete nut case.

    The original video is here:

    This monolith-like structure he is talking about is here:

  • Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong are big believers in aliens - and in fact a lot of astronauts have returned to earth as believers - do some research on their experiences its fascinating - especially Edgar Mitchell from Apollo 14.

  • Earth is covered by thousands of monoliths.
    Big deal.

  • Buzz is a great astronaut. And it would be awesome if we pursued a robust space program with a purpose. But there is no Space Odyssey style monolith on Phobos.

  • I'm sure Buzz knows more about the moon and mars than any of you commentators.
