Remembering John Glenn: The Man and the Legend

July 18, 2017 | 8:00pm
Presented Online | Museum in Washington, DC
Free, Tickets Required

This lecture will be webcast on Air and Space Live

John Glenn is one of the most recognized names and public figures in the world, a consequence of his stature as the first American to orbit Earth. That brief event made him a legend, but Glenn’s full career spanned more than seven decades as an aviator, engineer, astronaut, businessman, U.S. Senator, public servant, and educator. Behind the legend was a man devoted to the nation, the American people, and his family – a genial and thoughtful man of good humor, faith, and eloquence. These aspects of Glenn’s life will be remembered in an intimate conversation with:

  • The Honorable David Pryor, U.S. Senator from Arkansas, 1979-1997
  • Dr. Kathryn Sullivan, astronaut and Lindbergh Chair in Aerospace History at the National Air and Space Museum
  • Moderated by Bob Schieffer, broadcast journalist
