Fifteen years ago today, at age 77, John Glenn became the oldest man to go into space, as Payload Specialist for space shuttle Discovery.  It had been over 36 years since he had become the first American to orbit the earth  aboard the Mercury Friendship 7 space capsule.  I remember sitting in my aunt’s living room in Salt Lake City listening with excitement to the radio as John Glenn circled the earth.


I have 17 years left before I’ll be 77. Lots of time yet in my life to do great things!
