On February 20, 1962, John Herschel Glenn, 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 mission around the Planet. The Mission lasted 4
hours, 55 minutes, and 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 States
even more hope of someday reaching the moon.
NOTE that this is a non-flying, static plastic display model. Some plastic models can be converted for flight, but that subject is outside of the realm of this website.
