Dream Is Too High: Life Lessons From a Man Who Walked on the Moon
Beloved American hero and astronaut Buzz Aldrin reflects
on the wisdom, guiding principles, and irreverent anecdotes he's gathered—both in outer space and on earth—through
his event-filled life, in this inspiring guide-to-life for the next generation.
Everywhere he goes, crowds gather to meet Buzz
Aldrin. He is a world-class hero, a larger-than-life figurehead, best known of a generation of astronauts whose achievements
surged in just a few years from first man in space to first men on the moon. Now he pauses to reflect and share what he has
learned, from the vantage point not only of outer space but also of time: still a non-stop traveler and impassioned advocate
for space exploration, Aldrin will be 86 in 2016.
No Dream Is Too High whittles
down Buzz Aldrin's event-filled life into a short list of principles he values, each illustrated by fascinating anecdotes
and memories, such as:
· Second comes right after
first. NASA protocol should have meant he was first on the moon, but rules changed just before the mission. How he learned
to be proud of being the second man on the moon.
for opportunities, not obstacles. Buzz was rejected the first time he applied to be an astronaut. Failure is an opportunity
to learn to do better.
· Always maintain your spirit
of adventure. For his 80th birthday, Buzz went diving in the Galapagos and hitched a ride on a whale shark. He stays fit,
energetic, and fascinated with life.
No Dream Is Too High is a beautiful memento, a thought-provoking
set of ideas, and a new opportunity for Buzz Aldrin to connect with the masses of people who recognize his unique place in
About Buzz Aldrin
Aldrin grew up in Montclair, New Jersey. His mother, Marion Moon, was the daughter of an Army Chaplain and his father Edwin
Eugene Aldrin was an aviation pioneer. Buzz graduated one year early from Montclair High School and he attended the US Military
Academy at West Point, graduating third in his class with a BS in mechanical engineering. He then joined the Air Force where
he flew F86 Sabre Jets in 66 combat missions in Korea, shot down two MIG-15′s, and was decorated with the Distinguished
Flying Cross. After a tour of duty in Germany flying F100′s, he earned his Doctorate of Science in Astronautics at MIT
and wrote his thesis on Manned Orbital Rendezvous.
Selected by NASA in 1963 into the third group of astronauts, Aldrin was the first with a doctorate and became known
as “Dr. Rendezvous.” The docking and rendezvous techniques he devised for spacecraft in Earth and lunar orbit
became critical to the success of the Gemini and Apollo programs, and are still used today. He pioneered underwater training
techniques to simulate spacewalking. In 1966 on the Gemini 12 orbital mission, Buzz performed the world’s first successful
spacewalk – extra-vehicular activity (EVA), and set a new EVA record of 5 1⁄2 hours. During that mission, he also
took the first ‘selfie’ in space.
July 20, 1969, Buzz and Neil Armstrong made their historic Apollo 11 moonwalk, becoming the first two humans to set foot on
another world. An estimated 600 million people – at that time, the world’s largest television audience in history
– witnessed this unprecedented heroic endeavor.
Upon returning from the moon, Buzz was decorated with the Presidential Medal of Freedom and numerous awards all over
the world. Named after Buzz are Asteroid “6470 Aldrin” and the “Aldrin Crater” on the moon. In 2011
along with his Apollo 11 crewmates Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins, he received the Congressional Gold Medal. Most recently,
he was named a member of the Space Advisory Committee by the Vice President of the United States.
Buzz is the author of 9 books, most recently his children’s book, Welcome
to Mars: Making a Home on the Red Planet and his newest NY Times and Washington Post Bestseller, “No Dream Is Too High:
Life Lessons from a Man Who Walked on the Moon”. Both published by National Geographic.
Buzz’s vision finally has come to past with the creation of the supreme
think-tank, Human SpaceFlight Institute which will fully launch later in the year.
from NASA and the U.S. Air Force, Col. Aldrin is a Global Statesman for Space and has remained a tireless advocate for human
