So that's something like twice as far from Earth as Earth is from the sun.

Balls bigger than I'll ever have!


Former astronaut John Glenn, the first American to orbit Earth, has died at 95.

The ex-Marine and US Senator had been in hospital in Columbus, Ohio, for more than a week and died surrounded by his children and wife of 73 years.

Glenn is best known for circling the earth in 1962 aboard the Friendship 7 space capsule.

His achievement marked the moment the US caught up with the Soviet Union in manned space exploration.

John Glenn had massive bollocks.. To go up on what was likely his last mission was amazing.. Then he went up again aged 77.

Thanks John..

I miss the age of the astronaut! Kids today would rather be youtubers than astronauts :(

Yeah amazing!!!. We will still be researching what it gave us for many years after it plummets to its demise on the surface.
