435) John Glenn

John Glenn (1921 – 2016). United States Marine Corps aviator, engineer, astronaut, and United States Senator from Ohio. In 1962 he was the first American to orbit the Earth, circling it three times.

- "Glenn is 5 feet 10-1/2 inches tall, weighs 168 pounds and has green eyes and red hair." https://science.ksc.nasa.gov/…/astronau…/e-to-h/GlennJH.html

- “He looked like a balding and slightly tougher version of the cutest-looking freckle-faced country boy you ever saw,” Mr. Wolfe wrote. “He had a snub nose, light-hazel eyes, reddish-blond hair and a terrific smile.” https://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/08/us/john-glenn-dies.html…
