Buzz Aldrin (Edwin Eugene Aldrin Jr.)

The second person to ever walk on the moon, Buzz Aldrin was the pilot of
NASA’s Apollo 11 mission and was a member of the third group of astronauts
ever selected by NASA. He served as an astronaut from his selection in 1963
until his retirement in 1971. Aldrin served as an U.S. Air Force officer and had
a Command Pilot rating. Appropriately enough, his mother’s maiden name
was Moon.

MYSTERY MAY FINALLY BE SOLVED!

Alton Glenn Miller (March 1, 1904 – December 15, 1944)

People magazine recently reported a retired trawlerman from
England is “utterly convinced” he pulled up the wreck of the
famed American bandleader’s aircraft in his fishing net 32 years
ago. And now, U.S.-based historical aircraft researchers from
TIGHAR say his account is “totally credible.”

According to TIGHAR, which stands for The International Group
for Historic Aircraft Recovery, the man was advised to drop his
unusual catch back into the English Channel, where it has
remained ever since. But he recorded the coordinates and the
magazine noted it is this key piece of evidence that may finally
lead to the site of Miller’s final resting place.

Miller, recognized as “the hottest recording artist of his era,”
dominated the swing music scene during his lifetime and was
famous for his self-penned signature tune, 1939’s “Moonlight
Serenade.”

The launch of Space Shuttle Columbia was planned to begin on
January 11, 2001, but the mission was delayed 18 times and
eventually launched on January 16, 2003 (above).  

During the lift-off of Columbia’s 28th mission, a piece of foam
insulation broke off from the Space Shuttle’s external tank and
struck the left wing of the craft. An accident investigation board determined the damage to the wing allowed hot atmospheric
gases to inter the heat shield, destroying the internal wing
structure and caused the spacecraft to become unstable and
break apart upon re-entering Earth’s atmosphere on February
1, killing all seven crew members.
