Godspeed, John Glenn

American hero John Glenn passed today at age 95. Glenn has the distinction of being the 1st American to orbit Earth in 1962. He's the oldest person in space when he joined a Space Shuttle mission in 1998 at the age of 77. Additionally, Glenn is a highly decorated war veteran, serving both in WWII and Korea. For 24 years, he represented Ohio in the Senate.

We have an infinite amount to learn from both nature and from each other.
