Jr. piloted the Mercury Atlas "Friendship 7 " spacecraft on America's
first manned orbital mission of the Earth. After Launching from Kennedy
Space center in Florida, Glenn successfully completed a three-orbit

23 seconds from launch to impact, and during it Glenn reached an orbital
velocity of 17,500 miles hour and a maximum altitude of approximately
162 miles. The flight was received with great enthusiasm and relief in
the United States and many other countries, it also gave the United
