Preserving the Past, Focusing on the Future
"John Glenn, the 1st American to orbit Earth, has died at 95"
"On October 29, 1998, Glenn made a return to space on the space shuttle Discovery, and made history again as the oldest person to enter space at the age of 77. The nine-day mission had many goals, including an investigation on aging and space travel. The following year, in January 1999, he retired from the Senate."
