Aldrin: World should build Moonbase

Noted space sciences reporter Shelby G. Spires has noted an entry in the blog credited to Buzz Aldrin. The lunar module pilot for Apollo 11, second man to walk on the Moon writes, "Instead of duplicating -- at great cost and effort -- the lunar competition that Neil Armstrong, Mike Collins and I won more than four decades ago last summer, I propose instead America call the world to the Moon. In a new global effort to use the Moon to establish a global space consortium with a lunar surface facility as its epicenter, America can gain new leadership, international respect, and technological progress by collaborating with emerging space powers, not merely competing with them."
