PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 19 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on The Space Race - John Glenn. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

John Glenn was a military pilot who was selected in 1959 for Project Mercury astronaut training. He became a backup pilot for Alan B. Shepard Jr. and Virgil I. Grissom, who made the first 2 U.S. suborbital flights into space. Glenn was selected for the 1st orbital flight, and in 1962, aboard Friendship 7, he made 3 orbits around Earth.

After retiring from the military in January 1,1965, he became a businessman and served 4 terms in the United States Congress. On October 29, 1998, Glenn made a return to space on the space shuttle Discovery to research aging and space travel. The following year, he retired from the Senate.

After a few failed attempts, Glenn was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1974. The OH Democrat held posts on several committees, including the Committee on Government Affairs. Outspoken on many issues, Glenn campaigned for more funds for space exploration, science and education. In 1984, he even made a bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.
