Apollo 11 crew: Moon less interesting than Mars Albany Democrat-Herald

The first astronauts to walk on the moon want President Barack Obama to aim for a new destination: Mars.
On Monday, the Apollo 11 crewmen, fresh from a Washington lecture Sunday in which two of them expressed concerns about NASA getting bogged down on the moon, are meeting with Obama at the White House.
In one of their few joint public appearances, the crew of Apollo 11 spoke on the eve of the 40th anniversary of man’s first landing on the moon, but didn’t get soggy with nostalgia. They instead spoke about the future and the more distant past.
