Buzz Aldrin Takes to Social Media Seeking Moon Launch Memories

45 years ago today, three American astronauts won the space race for the moon when the Apollo 11 mission launched. 600 million people watched Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walk on the moon just a few days later. Now, one of the astronauts is taking to social media to hear your memories of the moon landing.

84 year old Buzz Aldrin – who, by the way, was the namesake of Buzz Lightyear – posted a Youtube video asking people to share their stories of where they were on July 20, 1969. If you weren’t born yet, or like me, were too young to remember the moon launch and landing, Aldrin wants to know how the moon landing inspired you.

You can use any social media platform to post your memories with the hashtag #Apollo45. I never watched the news reports of the moon landing, only the iconic clip of the planting of the American flag that played endlessly on MTV. The video of Walter Cronkite and astronaut Wally Schirra watching the launch, and then the subsequent landing on the moon, actually brought tears to my eyes:
