SPACEMAN GOES ON HIS FINAL RIDE TO THE STARS

Post  Lamplighter on Fri Dec 09, 2016 7:16 am

John Glenn, first American to orbit the Earth, dies at 95

John Glenn, the first American to orbit the Earth and a longtime US senator, died Thursday, according to the Ohio State University. He was 95.

It was announced Wednesday that Glenn had been hospitalized "more than a week ago," according to Ohio State University spokesman Hank Wilson. He was at the James Cancer Hospital at the Ohio State University, but his illness was not disclosed.   Glenn had heart valve replacement surgery in 2014.

He was one of my greatest heroes, his epic ride in Friendship 7 took place on my birthday, 20 February 1962.

RIP John H, you were the greatest of them all.    Lamplighter

ETA My dad bought me this to celebrate a very special birthday!

I thought it was lovely that John got back into space, at the ripe old age of 77, in comparative comfort on the Shuttle.
