Buzz Aldrin speaking with attendees at the 2016 Cloud Summit

Discussing his career in general, Aldrin told National Geographic, “Along the way, I discovered that I could contribute by using my innovation to think outside the box, in order to better serve my country. I took an oath to do that when I was 17 years old, and I’ve continued to be motivated by it – not by financial gain. I’m not driven by what comes back to me.” Photo Credit: Gage Skidmore/Flickr | CC BY-SA 2.0
