Former Astronaut and U.S. Senator John Glenn Dies at 95


John Glenn has passed away at age 95.

Glenn was the first American to orbit the Earth, on the Friendship 7 space capsule in 1962.  That accomplishment put the United States on equal footing with Russia in the space race.

He also served for 25 years as a Democratic senator and was a decorated Marine Corps fighter pilot in World War II and the Korean War.

RIP to an American legend.
