John Glenn is a great person. He is a retired United States Marine Corps pilot, astronaut, and United States senator. He was the first man to orbit earth 3 times in one day. He is a public figure and a great on at that he teaches them to go for your dreams and do what you want to in life.
The reason why i picked John Glenn is because he is a good role model. He thought me to never give up in life and to fight for whats right. He seems really cool, i think he wasn't thinking when he went into space because it seems like a scary place to go.
The things i learned about John Glenn is that he was the first person to orbit earth 3 times in one day another thing i learned is he retired in 1965 from the military and resigned from NASA so he could eligible to stand for election to public office another thing i learned is in 1990 he was inducted into the Astronaut Hall of Fame and the last thing i learned is on October 29, 1998 while still sitting Senator he became the oldest person to fly in space.
