Godspeed, John Glenn.

My first post on this blog came a few days sooner than I had intended to start it, because I needed to get some things off of my chest as I tried to cope with the death of Neil Armstrong.  Now today, I mourn the passing of another Ohio astronaut and American hero, John H. Glenn, Jr.  I hurriedly prepped a slideshow presentation to accompany the lesson I plan on giving in my classes tomorrow in lieu of what we were going to cover.  What follows are images of Glenn and some highlights of his career.  I'm going to attempt to record one of the lectures tomorrow, so that I can post it for my online Earth & Space Science class as well- if I manage to do this I will update this post.

UPDATE:  What follows is a recording of one classroom lecture that I made for my online class.  Following that is a YouTube video that I had intended to play at the end of the lecture, but was unable to because I ran out of time.
