    I just met a national treasure! Views: 737

    I've just returned from the Cradle of Aviation museum in Garden City where I met Buzz Aldrin. He was doing a book signing. A living legend.

    Oh pooh, wish I knew about it. I work all of 2 minutes away from the museum and had to go past there to go to a meeting in Garden City Frown

    I have met a couple of astronauts through the Planetary Society, but am always happy to see as many as I can. They are my heroes, always have been. Inspired lots of dreams of space.

    He's a personal hero of mine, too.

    You'll note, of course, that he's my Doctor Who in "The Second Key".

    Perhaps that's not obvious, but it's a Hasbro GI Joe Buzz Aldrin.

    Sean.

    One solid hope is worth a cartload of uncertainties.

    So Ken... Is he a Doctor Who fan? If so, we'll have to interview him for Doctor Who: Podshock Wink ... It is cool that you met him... I can't believe it's been what? ... 36 years since his historic first moon walk.

    Check out BuzzAldrin.com, his official site.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    Hey Sean,

    You know, I did recognize him of sorts... I mean, I knew I knew him, but I just couldn't figure out just who it was...
