Buzz Aldrin relives the Magnificent Desolation of space, and the soul-sucking depression that awaited back home. Vanity Fair, Hot Type. One might say that the astronaut's disclosure of his stresses in 1973 was an attempt at closure, albeit a premature one. Unfortunately for Aldrin, in some ways his troubles were just intensifying.

Magnificent Desolation book. It is a long time since the American Government were willing to put any money into space exploration, and Buzz Aldrin feels this is very short-sighted. He talks about the Chinese, and their "taikonauts", feeling the irony of the giant steps China are now taking, while the USA seems unwilling to finance anything.
Magnificent Desolation: The Long Journey Home from the Moon. Written by Buzz Aldrin and Ken Abraham. Narrated by Patrick Egan. From the glory of being part of the mission that fulfilled President Kennedy's challenge to reach the moon before the decade was out, Aldrin returned home to an Air Force career stripped of purpose or direction, other than as a public relations tool that NASA put to relentless use in a seemingly nonstop world tour. The twin demons of depression and alcoholism emerged-the first of which Aldrin confronted early and publicly, and the second of which he met with denial until it nearly killed him.
Magnificent Desolation: The Long Journey Home from the Moon is the second of two autobiographical books written by Buzz Aldrin, the former Apollo 11 astronaut who with Neil Armstrong made the first human Moon landing. The 2009 book concentrates mainly on the period after his return from space, and illuminates many of the difficulties he had in coping with his instant world-wide fame following the achievement.
All this said, I found "Magnificent Desolation" a fascinating read. This book starts out with the Apollo 11 mission in 1969 and takes it from there. I was 16 when Mr Aldrin first walked on the moon along with Neil Armstrong and since then I have held a special affection in my heart for these Men of Space. More than that: the men who first set foot on another planet. Yes, I know that technically speaking the Moon is not a planet: but I don't particularly care for the circumlocution "celestial body". You read about how Mr. Aldrin dealt with depression and alcoholism in the years after the historic moon landing. The book is very interesting until about the halfway mark.
In Magnificent Desolation, Aldrin not only gives us a harrowing .
