We've lost from this world the first American to orbit in space. He was ninety-five years old. He was the last of the legendary Mercury astronauts, the first seven astronauts picked by the NASA agency.

Both NASA-TVs are currently broadcasting live coverage of John Glenn's interment ceremony at Arlington National Ceremony. Arlington was founded in 1866; it is situated across Memorial Bridge from the Lincoln Memorial.
