Hi. I’m Buzz Aldrin. I have created this new iPad version of my popular Portal to Science & Space Exploration App to unite people and technology for the purpose of educating and entertaining the world on this interesting and critically important subject.
I am really excited about the iPad version of my App as it truly showcases the wealth of content we include. The App brings together a huge wealth of new, important and historical information about science and space exploration. I have gathered a network of scientists, physicists, astronomers, astronauts and many others of the world’s great minds to help me out and keep this app timely and relevant with lots of original content.
