Buzz Aldrin is an astronaut who is the second man to ever walk on the moon. Currently, he became a part of the team whose plan is to colonize Mars in the next 25 years.
This team is a part of the Florida Institute of Technology. Also, the Buzz Aldrin Space Institute will be opened in the fall and its main focus will be researching means of populating Mars.
Another focus is placed on transport concept known as Aldrin Mars Cycler. The purpose of this concept is to orbit between Mars and Earth.
His wish is that the populating trip happens on the 70th anniversary of his own historic moon venture.
However, if the plan is not implemented by the date of his anniversary, the year 2040 will also be acceptable.
