John Glenn passes away at the age of 95

John Glenn has passed away at the age of 95. One of the Mercury 7, he left the space race to pursue his political passions and became a U.S. senator. He finally returned to space in 1998 on a mission intended to study how space travel affects aging.

 “If there is one thing I’ve learned in my years on this planet, it’s that the happiest and most fulfilled people I’ve known are those who devoted themselves to something bigger and more profound than merely their own self interest,” Glenn said in 1997.
