Mae Buzz Aldrin (sef Edwin Eugene Aldrin, Jr., ganwyd 20 Ionawr 1930) yn enwog am fod yr ail ddyn i gerdded ar y Lleuad. Glanodd Aldrin ar y Lleuad gyda Neil Armstrong ar 20 Gorffennaf 1969, fel rhan o'r perwyl ofod Apollo 11. Hedfanodd i'r gofod dwywaith, unwaith yn Gemini 12 (1966), ac eto ar Apollo 11 yn 1969. Ar ôl dychwelyd o'r Lleuad, gadawodd Aldrin NASA, a dioddefodd o iselder, ond derbynodd driniaeth effeithiol.[1] Mae'n awdur saith o lyfrau ar y gofod.

Yn 2009, dywedodd na chredai fod dyn yn cael effaill newid yn hinsawdd y Ddaear:

"I think the climate has been changing for billions of years. If it's warming now, it may cool off later. I'm not in favor of just taking short-term isolated situations and depleting our resources to keep our climate just the way it is today. I'm not necessarily of the school that we are causing it all, I think the world is causing it."[2]
