He was the first American to orbit the earth three times. The entire mission lasted 4 hours 55 minutes and 23 seconds. From October 29th to November 7th, 1968 Glenn was again in space with the spacecraft Discovery as part of the space shuttle mission STS-95, this time he orbited the earth 134 times. At 77 years of age, he holds the record as the oldest spaceman in orbit.
- 30 D - Relief at the Cosmonaut Museum in Moscow. The edge of the block is illustrated with the complete cosmonaut museum. The museum consists of a low building with the exhibition and the monument "For the conquerors of space" on the roof of the building. This consists of a parabolic, curved and tapering tower, at the top of which a symbolic rocket rises into the sky at a height of 107 meters, as if on an exhaust jet. The cosmonaut avenue begins behind the statue, an avenue only open to pedestrians with busts of Soviet space pioneers and cosmonauts.
