Aldrin, 86, was visiting Antarctica when “his condition deteriorated,” according to White Desert, which organizes luxury tourism trips to the icy continent. The group said Aldrin was evacuated on the first available flight out of the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station to the McMurdo Station on the Antarctic coast under the care of a doctor with the U.S. Antarctic Program.

Buzz Aldrin's Master Plan for Colonizing Mars

      Aldrin, 85, who was the second person to walk on the moon in 1969, is teaming up with the Florida Institute of Technology to create an actionable plan for getting humans to Mars in the next quarter century. […]

Mars is located approximately 140 million miles away from Earth, which translates to about nine months of space travel to get to the Red Planet.

While some initiatives like the private Mars One bill the possible trip as a one-way mission, Aldrin said he believes humans could go on ten year tours of duty with the intent of returning to Earth.

Part of the plan, which Aldrin has dubbed “Cycling Pathways to Occupy Mars,” involves Phobos and Deimos, Mars’ two moon. The idea is the moons could serve as first stops for astronauts before reaching humans finally reach the Red Planet. Aldrin said he hopes NASA will be interested in his plan and also intends to ask for international feedback. […]

Beginner Guide Lunar Landing Conspiracy Theory

Beginner Guide Lunar Landing Conspiracy Theory
People who think that the Apollo moon landings were not all that they seemed at the time believe that Nasa faked some or all of the landings. Some of the theories surrounding this subject are that the Apollo astronauts did not land on the Moon; Nasa and possibly others intentionally deceived the public into believing the landings did occur by manufacturing, destroying, or tampering with evidence, including photos, telemetry tapes, transmissions, and rock samples; and that Nasa and possibly others continue to actively participate in the conspiracy to this day.
Those who think that Nasa faked some or all of the landings base their theories on photographs from the lunar surface which they claim show camera crosshairs partially behind rocks, a flag planted by Buzz Aldrin moving in a strange way, the lack of stars over the lunar landscape and shadows falling in different direction. Many commentators have published detailed rebuttals to the hoax claims, and these theories have been generally discounted but belief in them – particularly on the web – persists.

Real Life UFOs Seen By Celebrities

      Every year thousands of people claim they’ve spotted UFOs and alien visitors. With so many people reporting such sightings, it’s no surprise some of them are pretty famous. In fact, some people claim these celebrity sightings are even more believable than those reported by ordinary members of the public – the idea being already famous people do not need the extra attention created by UFO sightings. Personally, I’m not so sure of that fact.

In any case, here are some UFO sightings as reported by notable persons.

Russell Crowe

Back in 2013, Oscar winning actor Russell Crowe set up a camera to record the fruit bats which frequented his botanical garden in Woolloomooloo, Australia. However, when he assessed the footage, he same across three images which appeared to show a UFO. Check them out below:

Apollo 11’s UFO . . .

Orbital manoeuvres in the dark: Apollo 11’s UFO

      As Apollo 11 headed to the Moon, the astronauts looked out their window and noticed something—an object, flashing with some kind of regularity.

According to Jay Barbree in his new book Neil Armstrong: A Life of Flight, after they returned to Earth, there was some tension about this subject while the astronauts were in their quarantine module aboard the aircraft carrier USS Hornet (see “Review: Neil Armstong: A Life of Flight”, The Space Review, July 7, 2014). Barbree quoted Armstrong (pg. 300): “From the beginning I felt there was an explanation,” he told me. “We were looking back at lights that steadily flashed—natural lights or human made it seemed to me, and we just didn’t have the facts. I thought we had an obligation not to start some Hollywood frenzy about us being watched and followed by aliens.”

In several different forums Buzz Aldrin has consistently stated that he was pretty sure that the flashing that he saw was part of the Saturn V that had launched them to the Moon:

On Apollo 11 in route to the Moon, I observed a light out the window that appeared to be moving alongside us. There were many explanations of what that could be, other than another spacecraft from another country or another world—it was either the rocket we had separated from, or the 4 panels that moved away when we extracted the lander from the rocket and we were nose to nose with the two spacecraft. So in the close vicinity, moving away, were 4 panels. And I feel absolutely convinced that we were looking at the sun reflected off of one of these panels. Which one? I don’t know. So technically, the definition could be “unidentified.” . . .

What was The UFO The Apollo 11 Astronauts Spotted? | VIDEO

     HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – Something was there, floating in space outside the window of Apollo 11, “out there close enough to be observed,” as Col. Buzz Aldrin would say years later.

The crew of Apollo 11, en route to the moon, encountered an unidentified flying object.

That doesn’t necessarily mean it was little green men in a space ship from another planet or the USS Enterprise or Mork soaring in from Ork.

But something was there.

By the purest definition of the words “unidentified flying object,” it’s exactly what it was.

Even now, it remains unidentified. . . .

'Aliens on the Moon' TV Show Adds Weird UFO Twists to Apollo Tales

     The pixels in a photograph can be funny things, as demonstrated time and time again in “Aliens on the Moon: The Truth Exposed,” a TV documentary airing on Sunday’s 45th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 moon landing.

What one person sees as a overly magnified image with distortions that merely form strange patterns, another person sees as incontrovertible proof that extraterrestrials have left giant antennas, spaceships and industrial complexes on the moon.

“There’s no doubt that these structures exist,” Robert Kiviat, producer of the two-hour SyFy Channel show, told NBC News. (NBC News Digital and SyFy are both part of NBC Universal.)

Is Kiviat serious? He sounds like it. “My goal would be, right upon the airing on Sunday night, maybe even the day after, to approach the NASA administrator in Washington … and pretty much say, ‘Look, here are these photographs, here’s what we know from the NASA data, we would love to work with this under NASA auspices,'” he said. . . .
