Buzz Aldrin on 'Gravity'

If you were to ask me what there's not enough of in the world, I would have to think long and hard, because there's too much of so many things. But after a few moments' deliberation, my answer would probably include "real-life astronauts writing reviews of science-fiction entertainment".

Anyway, if you're similarly minded, rejoice, because here's one of 'em. Aldrin was the second man to walk on the moon, and the Command Pilot on Gemini 12. 'Aldrin's two-hour, 20-minute tethered space-walk, during which he photographed star fields, retrieved a micrometeorite collector and did other chores, at last demonstrated the feasibility of extravehicular activity.'
