Buzz Aldrin, one of the three American astronauts to set foot on the moon in the 1969 Apollo 11 mission, got married to his longtime love, Dr. Anca Faur, on his 93rd birthday. The couple tied the knot in a small ceremony in Los Angeles, California, and the former astronaut announced the news on Twitter.
In his tweet, Aldrin wrote, “On my 93rd birthday & the day I will also be honored by Living Legends of Aviation I am pleased to announce that my longtime love Dr. Anca Faur & I have tied the knot. We were joined in holy matrimony in a small private ceremony in Los Angeles & are as excited as eloping teenagers.”
This is Aldrin’s fourth marriage. He has been married and divorced three times prior. He is the only surviving member of the Apollo 11 mission’s three-man crew. While Neil Armstrong was the first astronaut to step on the lunar surface, Aldrin followed 19 minutes later.
After retiring from NASA in 1971, Aldrin founded the ShareSpace Foundation, a non-profit organization that aims to promote the expansion of crewed space exploration. The foundation’s mission is to inspire the next generation to pursue careers in the field of space exploration and to make space accessible to all.
In conclusion, Buzz Aldrin, the second man to set foot on the moon, tied the knot with his longtime love Dr. Anca Faur on his 93rd birthday and shared the news on Twitter. The couple got married in a small ceremony in Los Angeles and are as excited as eloping teenagers, as Aldrin said in his tweet. The former astronaut has been an advocate for space exploration and continues to inspire the next generation to pursue careers in the field through his foundation.
