Buzz Aldrin's Cycling Pathways To Mars

CYCLING PATHWAYS TO MARS

Buzz Aldrin is an American astronaut best known for piloting the Lunar Module on the Apollo 11 mission in 1969, and the second person to set foot on the moon. While it was a historic achievement, Dr. Aldrin wants to be remembered for more than just "kicking up moon dust." He wants his legacy to include laying the groundwork for a permanent human settlement on Mars, and he has a plan. This world’s first holographic ‘archival VR’ project, created by 8i, will give viewers a unique opportunity to ‘meet’ the astronaut through his hologram today, and will give future generations a chance to experience his legacy, long after mankind has made the journey to Mars.
