What's new here?

Its President’s Day, but it is perhaps more important to note that today is the 50th anniversary of John Glenn’s orbital flight on the Freedom 7!

John Glenn was not the first person in space, but he was the first American in space, and while the USSR was racking up a lot of ‘firsts’ in the Space Race but the the Mercury program  was actually much more effective research and testing for space exploration in the long run.

That’s all for today. Its kinda busy here!
