Aldrin rose to fame in 1969 when, together with his partner Neil Armstrong, he made the first moon landing in human history. However, Neil, as the commander of the Apollo 11 spacecraft, went out for a walk on the moon 15 minutes early. Buzz came in second. But he photographed the trace of his sole on the lunar surface. A very famous photo!
True, later a conspiracy theory appeared that the Americans had never landed on the moon. And all the scenes of “landing in the night light” were filmed, they say, on Earth in the pavilion of the famous film director Stanley Kubrick, the creator of “A Space Odyssey 2001.”
The “American moon scam” is one of the most popular “conspiracy theories” in the world. Dozens of revealing books and movies are dedicated to her.
Bart Sibrel, director of Something Strange Happened on the Way to the Moon, about the hoax of the Apollo 11 flight, met Aldrin in a Beverly Hills hotel. And he demanded to swear on the Bible that he really walked on the moon on July 20, 1969. The astronaut refused to swear. Then the director accused him on camera that he had never been to the moon and called him a coward, a thief, a liar. In response, a 72-year-old space veteran punched the director in the jaw. The prosecutor’s office refused to open a criminal case against the astronaut, believing that he was provoked.
Last summer, Aldrin experienced moments of glory again. At Sotheby’s, the jacket he landed in on the moon sold for $2.7 million, becoming the most expensive jacket ever sold at auction.
Anka Faur, 63, the fourth wife of the legendary astronaut, is a vice president of Buzz Aldrin Ventures LLC, which is owned by Aldrin.
