Buzz Aldrin, the second man to set foot on the moon, has sent a “message to the Red Planet” from Stonehenge.
(Buzz Aldrin was the second man to set foot on the surface of the moon, after Neil Armstrong, in July 1969)
The 85-year-old donned a T-shirt urging travel to Mars as he was snapped striking a Superman pose in front of the pre-historic monument.
Following his Wiltshire visit, he tweeted: “While at Stonehenge I decided to send a message to the cosmos.”
The veteran astronaut has called for renewed efforts to not only send a manned mission to Mars but colonize it.
Jessica Trethowan, from English Heritage, said there had been several enquiries about whether the image was real.
“Someone asked if it had been Photoshopped it, but it is real,” she said.
“It was a private visit for him and his family. We were told about it a week or so ago and everyone was very excited about meeting him.”
After a tour of the ancient site, the charity said Aldrin had asked “where we hide the aliens”.
