Senator John Glenn’s Memorial Service
NASA Television covered The Ohio State University’s public celebration of John Glenn’s life on Dec. 17, at the university’s Mershon Auditorium. The former NASA astronaut and U.S. Senator passed away Dec. 8 at the age of 95. Glenn, a decorated U.S. marine, was the first American to orbit Earth and, much later in life, became the oldest person to travel to space.
Glenn was a longtime supporter of Ohio State and its students. He was a University Honors Distinguished Fellow, chaired the college’s board of directors, and was an adjunct professor in both the Department of Political Science and the School of Public Policy and Management.
