Anotace:

Describes the life of John Glenn, including his childhood, World War II activities, work as a test pilot and astronaut, career as a senator, and return to space in 1998. John Glenn made history once again on October 29, 1998, when he rocketed into space aboard the shuttle Discovery as the world's oldest astronaut at the age of 77. Thirty-six years earlier, in 1962, he became a national hero as the first American to orbit the earth. Glenn began his career as a military pilot, serving in World War II and Korea. He worked as a Marine test pilot for several years, and first achieved fame when he broke the transcontinental speed record in 1957. Glenn also enjoyed a successful business career and served four terms in the U.S. Senate - all the while planning to someday return to space. Author Tom Streissguth tells the story of the remarkable man, who devoted his life to serving his country with courage and determination.
