John Glenn, the first American to orbit the earth has passed away at age 95.
The first American to orbit the Earth has died. John Glenn was the last surviving member of the original Mercury astronauts. He would later have a long political career as a U.S. senator, but that didn't stop his pioneering ways.

RIP to an American Hero-
