John Glenn Mercury Capsule Reentry
Astronaut John Glenn not only became the first American to orbit the Earth during NASA’s Mercury-Atlas 6 (MA-6) mission, he was also the first American to reenter the Earth’s atmosphere from orbital speed in his Mercury Spacecraft Friendship 7. During the reentry, Glenn commented, “This is Friendship 7. A real fireball outside.” This fine art piece was created digitally.
