Buzz Aldrin Net Worth: Buzz Aldrin is an American engineer and former astronaut who has a net worth of $10 million dollars. Buzz Aldrin was born Edwin Eugene Aldrin, Jr. on January 20, 1930 in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. He is most widely known for being one of the first people (astronauts) to walk on the Moon. He made this remarkable and historic journey to the Moon with fellow astronaut and flight commander, Neil Armstrong. Technically the 'second' person to walk on the Moon, he was the lunar module pilot on Apollo 11, during the first manned lunar landing in history. He set foot on the Moon at 03:15:16 (UTC) on July 21, 1969, following mission commander Neil Armstrong, historically the 'first' man to set foot on the Moon. Aldrin graduated third in his class at West Point in 1951 and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Force where he served as a jet fighter pilot during the Korean War. The nickname "Buzz" originated in childhood as a result of the younger of his two elder sisters mispronouncing "brother" as "buzzer" and this was shortened to Buzz. Aldrin made it his legal first name in 1988. His initial application to join the astronaut corps was rejected on the basis of having never been a test pilot; that prerequisite was lifted when he re-applied and his application was accepted into the third astronaut class. Aldrin was subsequently selected as part of the third group of NASA astronauts selected in October 1963. Because test pilot experience was no longer a requirement, this was the first selection for which he was eligible. He was confirmed as pilot on Gemini 12, the last Gemini mission and the last chance to prove methods for extra-vehicular activity (EVA). Aldrin set a record for EVA, demonstrating that astronauts could work outside spacecraft. On July 21, 1969, Aldrin became the second astronaut to walk on the Moon, holding the record for total EVA time until that was surpassed on Apollo 14. Aldrin's first words on the Moon were "Beautiful view. Magnificent desolation."
