Semper Fi, John Glenn! Today is the Anniversary of Friendship 7

On this day in 1962, Ohio born astronaut John Glenn was launched into space aboard Friendship 7. This flight made Glenn the first American to orbit Earth, circling the planet three times at more than 17-thousand miles per hour, setting the United States on a path to the Apollo 13 moon landing seven years later.

A true American hero.
