Aldrin retired from NASA in 1972. In 1988, he founded the ShareSpace Foundation, whose mission is to encourage space education and foster affordable space travel opportunities. Aldrin’s memoirs, Magnificent Desolation,” will be published in time for the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing this July.
