Buzz Aldrin

Buzz Aldrin, a former astronaut from the United States, tied the knot for the fourth time on his 93rd birthday.
Aldrin, who piloted the famous Apollo 11 space mission in 1969 and was one of the first two individuals to walk on the moon alongside mission commander Neil Armstrong, stated that he and his new wife Anca Faur were as enthusiastic as eloping teenagers.

He is among the three living individuals who have set foot on the Moon.

Mr. Aldrin shared photos from his and Dr. Faur’s wedding ceremony, which took place in Los Angeles, on Twitter.
In a tweet, he announced, “On my 93rd birthday and the day I will be honored by Living Legends of Aviation I am pleased to announce that my long-time love Dr. Anca Faur and I have tied the knot.”

Dr. Faur, who holds a PhD in chemical engineering and is the Executive Vice President of Mr. Aldrin’s company, Buzz Aldrin Ventures.

In 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the moon as part of the Apollo 11 mission, an event witnessed by an estimated 600 million people, making it the largest television audience in history at that time.
As a result, Mr. Aldrin instantly became one of the most well-known people on the planet and spent the ensuing months dealing with a flurry of media appearances, photo opportunities, and speeches.
However, in 2001, Mr. Aldrin told the Los Angeles Times that he was not fully prepared for the sudden fame and attention he received, saying, “I hadn’t thought that much of what would come afterward. I was not that prepared or comfortable to be thrust into the public eye that much.”

Before the historic moon landing, Mr. Aldrin had piloted fighter planes on US Air Force combat missions during the Korean War. In 2018, he founded a non-profit think tank named the Human SpaceFlight Institute.
