Project Mercury
Godspeed John Glenn
Lt. Col. John Glenn, Jr. became the first American to orbit the earth on February 20, 1962. Glenn's Mercury-6 “Friendship 7” mission made 3 orbits, lasted 4 hours, 55 minutes, 23 seconds and had a velocity of 17,544 m.p.h. This stamp marks the first time an unannounced commemorative was issued at the same time as the even it honored.
