National Geographic Live’s event “Mission to Mars” featuring Buzz Aldrin on Wednesday, May 8 will begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. as scheduled. Please take note of these street closures when making your travel plans.
Meet a legendary space explorer and hear his compelling thoughts on why we must continue to venture forth into the cosmos. The second person to set foot on the Moon during man’s first landing of Apollo 11, American astronaut Buzz Aldrin makes a passionate, thoughtful case for sending humans to the Red Planet by 2035. His new National Geographic book, Mission to Mars, blends a history of space flight with his personal vision to guide future exploration. In conversation with space journalist Leonard David, Aldrin will make the case for space as only one who has been there can.
The presentation will be followed by a book sale and signing.
