Underpaid Astronaut

Couple of days ago I received interesting article which claims that astronaut Buzz Aldrin was paid $8 per day when he flew to the moon and back in 1969. I did my research afterward and find out it is true. An on-line inflation calculator estimates those $8 would be $49 today. That has to stand as one of the most flagrant cases of underpaid labor ever but he did it anyway.

I suggest to keep Aldrin’s story in mind. It is not all about the money!
