As the second man to walk on the moon, Buzz Aldrin is one of the most famous astronauts in the history of the space program. So it’s surprising to learn that he was rejected the first time he applied to NASA. This hour, we’ll talk with him about perseverance and other wisdom he’s gained in his 86 years, which he’s collected in “No Dream Is Too High: Life Lessons From a Man Who Walked on the Moon” (National Geographic). Aldrin speaks Sunday at Highland Park United Methodist Church for Authors Live!
