Those were the words spoken by Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin on the surface of the Moon in July 1969, describing the fantastically barren scene before him. In issue 11 of All About Space (on sale Thursday 4 April from all good newsagents, the Imagine Shop and Great Digital Mags), he told us what he meant by that and much, much more in our exclusive interview with the man, the legend, himself.
