John Glenn - Friendship Seven

John Glenn Space Flight Friendship 7 NASA Click image above for full size version.

NASA has recently launched [no pun intended] a NASA Commons Flickr page for images that appear to be out of copyright. Definitely worth a look.

And one has to give it to John Glenn. He's climbing into a space capsule that looks like it's held together with heavy duty red tape..

"On Feb. 20, 1962 at 9:47 am EST, John Glenn launched from Cape Canaveral's Launch Complex 14 to become the first American to orbit the Earth. In this image, Glenn enters his Friendship 7 capsule with assistance from technicians to begin his historic flight."

Seriously Bravely Done.
