One of the world’s leading astrophysicists has teamed up with one of the first humans ever to walk on the moon to help plot out humanity’s future in space. 
 
Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking and Buzz Aldrin — who in 1969 became the second person to set foot on the moon — have joined forces in an effort “to better mankind’s future in space” after a recent meeting in Southern California, according to an announcement.
 
Details of their plans are sketchy at the moment, but the pair are dreaming big, with nothing less than the survival of humanity on their minds. 
 
A vision for space 
 
In a joint statement, Aldrin and Hawking said that their collaboration “seeks to define and obtain a Unified Space Vision that will continue the expansion of a human presence in space and ensure the perpetuation of the species.”
