Successful human orbit by John Glenn in 1962 informs the way future space missions strategize launches. Orbital mechanic details from studying his flight help us understand the bandwidth of what a human can endure. In the details of Buzz Aldrin’s Mission to Mars he discusses possible launch plans that include a cycler spaceship that runs as a shuttle- I see a strong connection between these bodies of discovery (http://buzzaldrin.com/space-vision/advocacy/cycling-pathways-to-occupy-mars/)
Wishing peace for the space people upset by our loss of a hero.
