On February 20, 1962, Mercury astronaut John Glenn became the first American to orbit the Earth (three orbits, 4 hours 55 minutes) aboard Friendship 7. Glenn was then grounded by President John F. Kennedy, who wanted to protect the national hero. Thirty-six years later, on October 29, 1998, Glenn, a U.S. Senator from Ohio, returned to space aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery. At 77, the oldest man in space spent nine days on the mission, orbiting the Earth 134 times. Glenn's participation enabled scientists to study the effects of space on the aging process. Fine condition.
