Beloved American hero Buzz Aldrin reflects on the wisdom, guiding principles, and irreverent anecdotes he's gathered through his event-filled life—both in outer space and on earth—in this inspiring guide-to-life for the next generation. Everywhere he goes, crowds gather to meet Buzz Aldrin. He is a world-class hero, a larger-than-life figurehead, best known of a generation of astronauts whose achievements surged in just a few years from first man in space to first men on the moon. Now he pauses to reflect and share what he has learned, from the vantage point not only of outer space but also of time: still a non-stop traveler and impassioned advocate for space exploration, Aldrin will be 86 in 2016. No Dream Is Too High whittles down Buzz Aldrin's event-filled life into a short list of principles he values, each illustrated by fascinating anecdotes and memories, such as: · Second comes right after first. NASA protocol should have meant he was first on the moon, but rules changed just before the mission. How he learned to be proud of being the second man on the moon. · Look for opportunities, not obstacles. Buzz was rejected the first time he applied to be an astronaut. Failure is an opportunity to learn to do better. · Always maintain your spirit of adventure. For his 80th birthday, Buzz went diving in the Galapagos and hitched a ride on a whale shark. He stays fit, energetic, and fascinated with life. No Dream Is Too High is a beautiful memento, a thought-provoking set of ideas, and a new opportunity for Buzz Aldrin to connect with the masses of people who recognize his unique place in human history.

"Imagine being far enough from the earth that it looks like a tiny blue circle. In July 1969, three men aboard the Apollo spaceship got to see just that on their way to the moon. The moon landing is an unforgettable episode in American history. For centuries, going to the moon had seemed like an interesting idea, but surely impossible. But as various technologies developed at a rapid pace in the mid-20th century, the impossible became possible. You've surely heard of Armstrong's famous words, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." But there's probably a lot that you don't know. Get ready to discover the following: - The debate behind Armstrong's famous words - The contents of the poem that Pat Collins gave her husband before he left Earth - The adrenaline rush of the three astronauts when Apollo 11 launched - How the astronauts dealt with TV cameras to provide video footage - The complex responsibilities of managing a spaceship 50 years ago Even if you've heard recordings of Neil Armstrong's voice many times, when you immerse yourself in the dramatic events of July 1969, you'll unearth the significance and fascination of this famous historical event"--

Having the desire, ability, and belief in yourself to innovate beyond what past generations ever imagined possible, explore ground none has ever walked on, and live and work in ways no one has ever lived and worked--these skills may not only increase the next generation's chances for success in the new century, in an employability and globally competitive sense. If Stephen Hawking and others are correct, they may be necessary to ensure our survival. Investing in Our Future: Preparing the Next Generation to Occupy Mars speaks to the need to cultivate new innovators and explorers whose dreams will move us forward, and whose travels will likely take us back to the moon and beyond. Its threefold purpose is: To reignite our passion to be limitless, ever-curious problem solvers, To foster a STEM-literate citizenry to innovate in ways we cannot yet imagine, and; To frame plans for leveraging what we know to enable the next generation to visit and possibly live and thrive on Mars. In this book, the authors deliver a compelling, succinct, and timely vision for recasting our approach to K-12 education to prepare a changing world for a successful future.
