Mercury-Atlas 6, or Friendship7, was the first American orbital spaceflight, which took place on 2/20/62. Piloted by astronaut John Glenn, the spaceflight lasted 4 hours, 55 minutes, 23 seconds, and reached an altitude of 134 nautical miles, and flew 65,763 nautical miles. After three orbits, the spacecraft re-entered the Earth's atmosphere, splashed down in the North Atlantic Ocean, and was safely taken aboard USS Noa.
