Have you ever dreamed of blasting into space and being surrounded by those amazing twinkling stars? John Glenn at the age of 77 (The oldest man ever been on space), he went in space on February 20, 1962. And he was the first American to orbit Earth 3 times in a row.
This amazing life began in Cambridge, Ohio on July 18, 1921.HIs parents, Theresa and John, took him to the Muskingum College and he studied engineering.
Did you know that Glenn left school to fight for the violent Korean war?
A few years later, John Glenn became a dad and he had two kids and he had no siblings at all! In the year 1961, Glenn was selected for the U.S. astronaut training. It was very dangerous, bot he still managed to go through it.
By the year 1962, he finally went into the magnificent space, explored it and completed the 3 orbits. As soon as he went back to Earth his first quote was ‘You should run your life not by the calendar, but how you feel and what your interests are and ambitions.’ he followed his own advice, and after NASA, he became a U.S. senator.
John Glenn is such an unbelievable man. But unfortunately, Glenn passed-away on December 8, 2016 (95 years old).I believe that Glenn is a awesome man and this person is unforgettable.
