Aldrin was one of three astronauts on NASA's Apollo 11 mission to the moon, on which he was tasked as the lunar module pilot and rendezvous expert. He was scheduled to be there until December 8 but his "condition deteriorated" shortly after arriving, according to the White Desert statement. The elder Aldrin was clearly excited about his adventure to the bottom of the world: "South Pole here I come!" he said via Twitter on November 28. The group departed Tuesday from Cape Town, South Africa, on a trip that was supposed to last just over a week. Doctors agreed an evacuation was prudent after Aldrin's condition deteriorated, according to his staff in Florida.
