BUZZ ALDIN IS WORKING ON A ‘MASTER PLAN’ TO COLONIZE MARS BY 2040

Aug 30, 2015 by

 In Brief Buzz Aldrin and Florida Institute of Technology are developing “a master plan” to colonize Mars within 25 years. The second man to walk on the moon is pushing for a Mars settlement by approximately 2040. More specifically, he’s shooting for 2039, the 70th anniversary of his own Apollo 11 moon landing, although he admits the schedule is “adjustable”.
The 85-year-old Aldrin, who followed Neil Armstrong onto the moon’s surface on 20 July 1969, hopes his “master plan” is accepted by NASA and the country, with international input. NASA already is working on the spacecraft and rockets to get astronauts to Mars by the mid-2030s. He envisions using Mars’ moons, Phobos and Deimos, as preliminary stepping stones for astronauts. He said he dislikes the label “one-way” and imagines tours of duty lasting 10 years.

    I wonder if Mr Aldin has yet considered the radiation obstacle; the same one that back at the time of the *supposed* moon landing, the flimsy little space suits would have never sustained. Aldrin must have some sort of brain implant or chip or something.
