John Glenn, sixties spaceman and icon of my research.

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.
