Mission Mars: United States Astronaut Reveals Plan to Inhabit the Red Planet

Apollo 11 astronaut, Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon, said that a settlement in Mars could be possible by 2040. The space enthusiast plans to use the moons as extraterrestrial pit stops, allowing an easier way to establish a Mars colony.

Florida Institute of Technology (FIT) formally established the Buzz Aldrin Space Institute, which aims to create a human colony on the fourth planet from the Sun.

Florida Tech has long been at the forefront of exploration—since the days of our founding in 1958, serving as the ‘night school for missilemen’ when America began the race for space at Cape Canaveral,” said Florida Tech President and CEO Anthony J. Catanese, according to FIT web page.
Having Dr. Aldrin build this new initiative at Florida Tech is indeed an honor. We look forward to meaningful collaboration as humankind’s new vision for space unfolds.”
