John Glenn died last week on Thursday December 8, 2016 at age 95.  He was one of the original seven original American astronauts and on February 20, 1962 was the first American to orbit the Earth.  He also was the oldest person to fly in space when he lifted off on the space shuttle Discovery for almost 9 days on October 29, 1998.  Some of his many other accomplishments include being a fighter pilot in both World War II and the Korean War, being a test pilot setting a transcontinental speed record in 1957 and later serving four terms as a U.S. Senator.  For more information about John Glenn's amazing life see the link below:
