Watch Live Stream Of Atlas V Rocket Launch In 360-Degree Video
20 April 2017, 06:30 | Bernard Bryant
One of NASA's delivery services is paying tribute to John Glenn, as it gets set to launch supplies to the International Space Station. John Glenn became the first US astronaut to orbit the Earth after being launched on a heritage Atlas LV-3B rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida in 1962.
NASA worked in coordination with Orbital ATK, which makes the Cygnus spacecraft that sits atop the Atlas V, and rocket maker United Launch Alliance to place "four fisheye-lens cameras on the pad, around 300 feet from the rocket", the website Engadget explains.
NASA's shipper, Orbital ATK, asked Glenn's widow, Annie, for permission to use his name for the spacecraft, following his December death.
Glenn was selected as a Mercury astronaut in April 1959 and became the first American to orbit the Earth in his Friendship 7 capsule on February 20, 1962. "The video will continue through countdown and launch and until the rocket is out of sight". Preliminary results from a study of astronaut twins, however, show the telomeres of former astronaut Scott Kelly, who spent almost a year aboard the station in 2015 and 2016, actually lengthened during his time in orbit, the opposite of what was expected. He was buried at Arlington National Cemetery two weeks ago. A new, larger greenhouse is flying up, along with equipment needed for a spacewalk next month.
NASA will also be broadcasting its first-ever 360-degree rocket launch video on their YouTube channel starting 10 minutes prior to liftoff. His flight helped to define America's position in the space race and paved the way for America's space program, from moon missions, to the space shuttle and the International Space Station. The American, Russian and Frenchman will be joined Thursday by another American and Russian who will take off from Kazakhstan.

The mission, which carried a capsule named after astronaut and U.S. Senator John Glenn, was delayed twice in March for issues with its ground support systems.
"We're really, really going to miss hearing your golden voice on console during launch, George", said Kennedy Space Center's director, Robert Cabana, patting him on the back.
According to the US space agency NASA, the new experiments include an antibody investigation that could increase the effectiveness of chemotherapy drugs for cancer treatment and an advanced plant habitat for studying plant physiology and growth of fresh food in space.
