CIW Speaker Buzz Aldrin Wants Everyone to Celebrate #Apollo45
|Buzz Aldrin took the CIW stage in 2013.|
So far, celebrities from Tom Hanks, Pharrell Williams and John Travolta to Neil deGrasse Tyson, Stephen Colbert and Bill Nye have participated. But Aldrin wants this “tremendous list of people” to grow to include all Americans who vividly remember the moon landing. The campaign is, after all, inspired by Aldrin’s everyday experiences as an American icon: He’s stopped daily by people who want to share their experience on July 20, 1969. Individuals can upload video memories to YouTube and written remembrances on Twitter or Facebook using #Apollo45.
“It’s going to be quite active between now and the end of the month,” the 84-year-old astronaut admitted.
