Buzz Aldrin at Los Angeles’ Ronald Reagan Presidential Library

Aldrin told the captivated audience at Los Angeles’ Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, “We did not know the instant of leaving the ground. We only knew it from the instruments and voice communications which confirmed liftoff. We sort of looked at each other and thought, ‘We must be on our way.’” Photo Credit: Jeff Gritchen, Orange County Register/SCNG/Getty Images
