To Infinity And Beyond, Space Man John Glenn Has Passed Away.

This almost brings a tear to me eye.

Former U.S. astronaut, Senator John Glenn dies in Ohio at 95



By Will Dunham
John Glenn, who became one of the 20th century's greatest explorers as the first American to orbit Earth and later as the world's oldest astronaut, in addition to a long career as a U.S. senator, died on Thursday at age of 95.

Glenn was the last surviving member of the original seven "Right Stuff" Mercury astronauts.

"John Glenn is, and always will be, Ohio's ultimate hometown hero, and his passing today is an occasion for all of us to grieve," Ohio Governor John Kasich said in a statement.

I have one foot out the door at the moment on my way to work in the nastiest weather we have had this year to date.
The words I want to say about this great man and his achievements won't come to me now anyway.

What can you say about him?

Legendary is one.
He will be remembered right up there with the greatest explorers mankind has ever produced.

God speed sir.

  2. A man who lived his life to the full. His kind grow fewer and fewer.
