    Friday 13th might be scary for some, but it’s going to be pretty awesome in Switzerland: astronauts Alexey Leonov and Buzz Aldrin will be in Lausanne to share their experience and tell what it’s like to set foot on the Moon at ‘The Moon Race’ historical evening on Friday, November 13.

    Both legendary spacemen have already arrived in Geneva and were very happy to see each other and have a laugh or two: 

    Friday’s event is organized by SWISSAPOLLO. “Between 1969 and 1972 twelve humans set foot upon the moon during the American Apollo program. Who were these men? What efforts went into achieving this audacious dream?” – reads their website. Buzz Aldrin, Alexey Leonov and others will be answering precisely these questions.

    And what’s Friday night without a movie?
