John Glenn

John Glenn was the pilot of the very first American orbital space launch. The mission was 4 hours and 55 minutes long. While he was up in space there were some people that were afraid that the heat shield on his Spaceship hadn't worked. The heat shield was made so that during re-entry it would shield the spaceship from burning up in the Earth's atmosphere. Luckily, the mission was fine and he lived.
