NASA Television will provide coverage of the interment service for NASA astronaut and U.S. Senator John Glenn at 9 a.m. EDT on Thursday, April 6, live from Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

Glenn, who served four terms as a senator from Ohio, was one of NASA’s original seven Mercury astronauts. His flight on Friendship 7 on Feb. 20, 1962, showed the world that America was a serious contender in the space race with the Soviet Union. He will always be remembered as the first American to orbit the Earth during those tentative, challenging, daring days when humans were just beginning to venture beyond the atmosphere that had nurtured them since the species began.
