American space pioneer John Glenn dies at age 95

Seriously, 2016 has really been an awful year for so famous people leaving this world.

He was 95 though, and he holds the record for being the oldest man in space. At the time he was 77; I doubt he'll have much competition for that distinction anytime soon. I should be so lucky as to live another 28 years.

If you've never watched The Right Stuff, I suggest giving it a look. It's in my top-tier of movies. Glenn is depicted (I believe accurately) as a guy with a stick up his ass, but when he was forced to choose between LBJ and his wife with a stutter, he chose his wife.

Rest in peace brave pioneer.

This year has been really, really awful as far as good men dying out.

I guess I'm about to have a look at it soon. Meanwhile, I found this video from the Youtube channel named "HD Film Tributes"; Bill Conti sets the tone very well there before I'll fully watch it.
