Fifty two years ago yesterday, I was sitting in my aunt’s house in Salt Lake City, UT, while John Glenn was orbiting the earth in the Friendship 7 Mercury space capsule. What an exciting, pivotal accomplishment in the history of US space travel!  Thanks to NASA for providing the photo and nostalgic reminder.
