But while trying to spread the word about the possibilities of space, Dr Aldrin said he was sceptical of climate change theories.
“I think the climate has been changing for billions of years,” he said.
“If it’s warming now, it may cool off later. I’m not in favour of just taking short-term isolated situations and depleting our resources to keep our climate just the way it is today.
So, if Aldrin is — in the words of ECONOMIST Paul Krugman — a traitor to Earth, to which planet does Aldrin pledge his allegiance?
The NASA astronaut Buzz Adrin has called for the world to press on with establishing a human settlement on Mars to offer the younger generation much-needed objectives.
Better dead than red planet I always say.
