John Glenn RIP - NASA Astronaut & Former Senator Dies At 95

Astronaut and politician John Glenn has sadly passed away.

He was 95 years old. Right now, there are no further details on his death, which was confirmed by Ohio Governor John Kasich, according to the Washington Post.

If you remember, John was one of the original “Magnificent Seven” NASA astronauts and he was the first to circumnavigate the world in 1962.

After his career as an astronaut, John served four terms as a United States senator from Ohio, his last term being in 1998 at age 77.

Our thoughts are with John‘s family and friends during this difficult time.

    RIP but how old did you expect him to become? It’s hardly a tragedy when a 95 year old person dies.

  • ugh

    Jared, it’s not the “Magnificent Seven,” it’s the “Mercury Seven.”

    Does anyone fact check anything anymore? It would have taken 5 seconds on Wikipedia.
