New Delhi: Astronauts and space have become synonymous, with their highly commendable contributions in the numerous discoveries related to the universe.

That said, NASA is not one to forget when it comes to honouring them. July 18th marks the 95th birthday of astronaut John Glenn, the first American to orbit the Earth, and the US space agency has shared a post wishing him on his day.

Post his career with NASA, Glenn served in the US Senate for 25 years, where he represented his home state, Ohio.

Space welcomed him again in 1998 when he boarded the space shuttle Discovery, to conduct biological research and perform other crew tasks.

NASA also shared a black and white image of a smiling Glenn in front of his Mercury capsule, the Friendship 7, which gave him the status of a national hero.
