Buzz Aldrin Icons

You all know (I hope!) that I love James ... I love his work as a brilliant actor.  But if I start typing about him I will run out of "paper"!!

However the choice of this set of icons made for Round 57 of character20n20  is that of Buzz Aldrin.

James portrayed this amazing character in the film Moonshot, that was released to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the landing of Apollo 11 on the moon.  I was fascinated by the story, as I was old enough to remember standing in my back garden and looking up at the moon.  I remember being sad that I couldn't actually see the shpace craft!  Since then I loved the whole space exploration programme, including going to a shop during college hours to watch the first shuttle return to earth!

When you see the documentaries, and the film(s ... including Apollo 13), you begin to see what amazing people these early astronauts are.  They were clever (++++), and brave ... as were the background crew, and the families.

So, I hope I have done justice to both the wonderful James, but also to the men of the Astronaut Core ... I salute you.

The three teasers are -
