Apex Trade Show 2007

FREE Keynote Presentation -

Reaching the Frontiers of Space: A Personal Journey and Outlook for the Future

Dr. Buzz Aldrin - ShareSpace Foundation

Tuesday, February 20, 8:00 am � 9:30 am

A living hero, an American patriot and space pioneer, Buzz Aldrin encourages audiences to �reach for the stars,� in life and their endeavors

He shares his memories of his momentous walk on the moon, the travels he's taken since and his vision for the future. Buzz draws upon his experience and insights and takes us on a journey into the future with his vision of a space-faring world where "citizen explorers" take space tours beyond lower-earth orbit and the Aldrin "Mars Cycler" spaceship makes frequent stops for astronaut explorers on Mars.

When Buzz and Neil Armstrong landed the Eagle on the moon more than 35 years ago, the event marked not only the fulfillment of President Kennedy's mission to send someone to the moon before the end of the 1960s, but also began a new era of space exploration for all humanity. Buzz is the embodiment of an adventurous spirit and stands as one of the bravest explorers of all time.
