In this special feature, Campaign talks to Buzz Aldrin to conclude the series. He walked on the Moon and made world history. He's a former astronaught, engineer and lifelong activist that still pushes boundaries, inspires and educates… at 87.

We asked him about being an influence for so many, his passion for travel and exploration and his achievements in space. 

On his ambitions, Aldrin said: "I’m at the younger part of opening things up rather than having been around for a long time. It’s new, many things are new to people. There’s a lot of experiencing people want to do, not just look at something but experience it themselves. I call that tourism, adventure and travel."
