Interesting about Buzz Aldrin....
Buzz Aldrin was one of the first two persons to walk on the surface of our natural satellite, the Moon!
What is interesting is that his mother's maiden name was Moon.
Aldrin was born on the 20th of January, 1930, in Mountainside Hospital. His parents were Edwin Eugene Aldrin Sr. (1896–1974), a career military man, and Marion Gaddys Aldrin (née Moon) (1903–1968), who lived in Montclair.
The renowned astronaut is of Scottish, Swedish, and German ancestry. He was born as Edwin Eugene Aldrin Jr., but has been called "Buzz" throughout all his life. Buzzer was just the way his sister mispronounced the word brother. Later the funny word was shortened to Buzz, which became the astronaut's official name in 1988.
