Biography

On July 20, 1969, Buzz Aldrin was the second human being to set foot on the Moon, along with mission commander Neil Armstrong.

Buzz Aldrin, Sc.D. was born in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. After graduating from Montclair High School in 1946, Buzz turned down a full scholarship offer from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and went to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. The nickname “Buzz” originated in childhood: the younger of his two elder sisters mispronounced “brother” as “buzzer”, and this was shortened to Buzz. He made it his legal first name in 1988.
