Congressman John Moolenaar, a member of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, released the following statement:

“John Glenn was an American pioneer and a committed public servant.

John Glenn was the first American into space and our efforts to learn more about the solar system will stand on his shoulders forever.”
