Buzz Aldrin and Kennedy speech. US astronaut Buzz Aldrin (born 1930) talking at a conference in front of footage (on screen) of the famous speech given by US President John F. Kennedy (1917-1963). Kennedy said to the US Congress on 25 May 1961: 'I believe this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth.' Aldrin, the lunar module pilot for the Apollo 11 mission, was the second person to walk on the lunar surface, doing so on 21 July 1969 with Neil Armstrong. Photographed in June 2011, at the Starmus Festival, the Canary Islands.
