To The MOON and Back – 

July 27, 2022 – Having been continually asked throughout the years if he was bothered about being the “second” not first man to step foot on the moon, Aldrin carries with him a sense of frustration.

During one interview back in 2009 he called the label “degrading” before going on to explain just how bad things got for him in the early 70s when he returned from the lunar mission.

Having rejoined the US Air Force as a commander of a test pilot school, he quit the armed services at the age of 42. From here he started to heavily drink alcohol, had an affair and suffered from depression.
