What were Buzz Aldrin's first words on the moon?

Posted: Updated:

If you ever wanted to learn a little bit about science and outer space, there were some members of astronaut royalty in town this weekend. Buzz Aldrin among others showcased how cool air and space technology is at the Go Boldly Expo done by Air Space Minnesota.

"I think images of people who have done something in the past motivate people right from the beginning," Aldrin said, preparing to help mold young minds at the expo.

But just what were those first words he uttered as the second man to ever walk on the moon? "Magnificent desolation." Those words are still quite appropriate given the mysterious, awe-inspiring, yet seemingly quiet nature of images and video we see from space today.
