The fist American to orbit the moon

Today's article is about the first American man to orbit the moon in outer space, John Glenn. This video shows you an interview about him. Check out this New York Times interview video with John Glenn. Notice the amazing view of the Earth he got to see on his exciting adventure to orbit the moon.

It's important to not forget that he was the first AMERICAN man to orbit the moon. Yes, this is amazing, but we must remember that the Soviet Union did this amazing task before us. The Sovieit Union is now known as Russia. The U.S. is celebrating this today, for this event happened 50 years ago. John F. Kennedy laid down this task, for at first the Americans were lagging behind. Please check out the video, for it gives great information.
Have a nice day!
