Former U.S. senator and astronaut John Glenn has died. He was 95 years old.
Glenn served as a military pilot during World War II and the Korean War, and he was one of the seven pilots selected to be in NASA's first group of astronauts.
Glenn left the space program to pursue a career in politics as a Democrat. He was elected as a U.S. senator for Ohio in 1974, and he served until 1999.
