John Glenn First American Orbit signed NASA Mercury Photo JSA 250.00

John Glenn First American Orbit signed NASA Photo - Project Mercury. Rare - JSA

John Herschel Glenn Jr. was an American aviator, engineer, astronaut, and United States Senator from Ohio.
He was one of the "Mercury Seven" group of military test pilots selected in 1959 by NASA to become America's first astronauts and
fly the Project Mercury spacecraft.

On February 20, 1962, Glenn flew the Friendship 7 mission and became the first American to orbit the Earth and the fifth person in space,
after cosmonauts Yuri Gagarin and Gherman Titov and the sub-orbital flights of Mercury astronauts Alan Shepard and Gus Grissom.
Glenn was the earliest-born American to go to orbit, and the second earliest-born man overall after Soviet cosmonaut Georgy Beregovoy.
Glenn received the Congressional Space Medal of Honor in 1978, and was inducted into the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame in 1990.
Glenn was the last surviving member of the Mercury Seven after the death of Scott Carpenter in 2013.

Glenn resigned from NASA on January 16, 1964, and finally won election to the Senate in 1974 and served through January 3, 1999.

On October 29, 1998, while still a sitting senator, he became the oldest person to fly in space, and the only one to fly in both the Mercury and Space Shuttle
programs, when at age 77, he flew as a Payload Specialist on Discovery mission STS-95. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2012.

Mercury-Atlas 6 (MA-6) was the third human spaceflight for the U.S. and part of Project Mercury. Conducted by NASA on February 20, 1962,
the mission was piloted by astronaut John Glenn, who performed three orbits of the Earth, making him the first U.S. astronaut to orbit the Earth.
The Mercury spacecraft, named Friendship 7, was carried to orbit by an Atlas LV-3B launch vehicle lifting off from Launch Complex 14
at Cape Canaveral, Florida. After four hours and 56 minutes in flight the spacecraft re-entered the Earth's atmosphere, splashed down
in the Atlantic Ocean and was safely taken aboard USS Noa.

The world has now sadly lost one of its last great space pioneers.
