Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 50 Commander Shane Kimbrough and Flight Engineer Peggy Whitson of NASA paid tribute to American legend John Glenn in a downlink message from the orbital outpost Dec. 9. Glenn, the last surviving Mercury 7 astronaut, former Ohio Senator and the oldest human to fly in space, died Dec. 8 at the age of 95. Glenn became the first American to orbit the Earth aboard Friendship 7 on Feb. 20, 1962. Thirty-six years later, on Oct. 29, 1998, Glenn returned to space at the age of 77 aboard the shuttle Discovery on the STS-95 mission.
