Today America said goodbye to one of its heroes. John Glenn inspired a generation to reach for the stars, and we are saddened to return him to them. We must honor his wishes, and solemnly rededicate ourselves to the good of all.
In February Astronaut John H. looks into a globe, technically the "Celestial Training Device" at the Aeromedical Laboratory at Cape Canaveral, Florida. Glenn became the first American to orbit Earth that same month.
