Buzz Aldrin & Michael Collins

On July 20th, 1969, Buzz Aldrin was 39 years old, a few months older than Neil Armstrong, as the two men became the first human beings ever to set foor on the moon.

Circling above them in the Apollo 11 command module was Michael Collins, age 38.

Now, Neil Armstrong died seven year ago, but Aldrin and Collins — both approaching 90 now — are still here to mark the fiftieth anniversary of one of the most significant days in all iof human history.

I was privileged to meet and interview both men — Collins in 1988, Aldrin in 2000
