A true gentleman
October 13, 2013I was having a conversation with Bruce at one of the Planetfests, when Buzz Aldrin hustled over with something to say. I remember thinking that the astronaut was clearly more deserving of Bruce's attention, yet he remained focused on our conversation as if it was the most important thing in the world at the time. I was struck by the extraordinary degree of warmth, and the genuine friendliness of the man.
