Apollo 11 astronauts call for mission to Mars

"Astronauts from the Apollo 11 mission have called on President Barack Obama and Americas politicians to provide proper funding for a return to the moon and the human exploration of Mars. On the eve of the 40th anniversary of the mans first steps on the moon on July 20, 1969, Buzz Aldrin said Mars should become the focus of renewed commitment to space travel. The second man to walk on the lunar surface, he called for the United States to set a goal of reaching the planet by 2035: ""To realise that dream we need a unified space vision. The greatest challenge for us is this: Americans, do you still dream great dreams?, Do you still believe in yourselves, are you ready for a great national challenge?"""
