The second man to ever walk on Moon, Buzz Aldrin, recently revealed on his 'Ask Me Anything' session with online bulletin board site Reddit, that he was interested in composing a new song, entitled 'Get your ass to Mars!' because he have heard Frank Sinatra sing Fly me to the Moon too many times.

The 84-year-old former astronaut also said that the next monumental achievement of humanity would be the first landing by an Earthling, a human being, on the planet Mars and he also suggested that they should not come back to Earth as they should be the beginning of a build-up of a colony/settlement, which he calls as 'permanence', reported.

Mr. Aldrin, who likes to be referred to as a "global space statesman", also told that the probability of aliens' existence was almost certain and there is life somewhere in space.

The engineer also admitted that Sandra Bullock deserved an Oscar for the movie Gravity.

Mr. Aldrin also shared that his first impression of the moon was of "magnificent desolation" as there is no place on earth as desolate and when he was looking at, towards the horizon, in every direction; nothing had changed in thousands of years.

He further explained that all he could see was the moon curving away, no atmosphere, just black sky and cold, but when the sun came up for 14 days, it was very hot, however, still no sign of life whatsoever.
