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.

Aldrin walks on the surface of the Moon during the Apollo 11 mission
in 1969.

On this day in 1981, Iran released 52 Americans that had been held hostage for 444 days. The hostages were flown to Algeria and then
to a U.S. base in Wiesbaden, West Germany. The release occurred minutes after the
U.S. presidency had passed from Jimmy Carter
to Ronald Reagan. The Iranians waited until the hour President
Reagan was sworn in before allowing the plane with the hostages
to take off.
