    "Need more information about Buzz Aldrin. First manned space mission on moon. Second person to walk on the moon. Political views that we need a strong president to make a commitment to space program like Kennedy did. However he also believes in private enterprise in space exploration. Fascinating views from a fascinating man"

    "What an incredible book! I love Astronomy and I was looking for a book to get more information about Mars. I picked this book up and immediately fell in love with it. Some of the info in the book is a bit out of date because we have learned a lot more about Mars since this book was written. But, the book is still written very well."
