Orbiting Around & Around - the First
On this day in history in 1962 John Glenn was the first American to orbit the Earth. Later John became a U.S. senator representing Ohio. And later he became the oldest person to go into space…. Which I think he still holds that record.
The first nation to have a man-made satellite to orbit around the Earth (in 1957) was Russian with their little basketball looking thing they called Sputnik.
