John Glenn and Friendship 7 live

This is not about a rock’n roll band…listening to the live recordings of John Glenn’s Friendship 7 mission aboard the Mercury spaceship is just fascinating! Although everybody sounds very professional, you can feel a lot of tension at times when Glenn unexpectedly goes silent for a few seconds.

This was 1962. Their onboard computers probably had less computing power than today’s wristwatches!
