Amsterdam, 18 July 2013 (SXC PR)— Earlier today, Space Expedition Corporation (SXC) announced that Second Man on the Moon and living space exploration icon Buzz Aldrin will be their new honorary member of The Advisory Board. Aldrin will play an active role in the company’s final preparations for their first planned Spaceflight with commercial participant-astronauts end of 2014.
Aldrin: “Having had the privilege of serving my country both in the US Air Force and during the Gemini 12 and Apollo 11 missions, I feel that there is nothing more thrilling than Space and all the possibilities that it offers us. For a long time it has been my personal mission through my ShareSpace Foundation to share the wonders of Space with people of all ages and to foster affordable Space travel opportunities for everybody. SXC, together with XCOR Aerospace, who designed and built the Lynx spacecraft and will perform the space flights, aims to facilitate Space flight experiences, expand human exploration and advance Space science education. They are a great team and I am very supportive of their vision to make space flight available to all.”
