Overview... a disciplined astronaut on Project Mercury. As a decorated Marine and test pilot, Glenn was a natural choice for NASA’s first attempt at manned space flight. He’s a born leader who takes his responsibilities very, very seriously. But as America’s newfound media darling, Glenn has to figure out how to keep his private life – and his shy wife – away from public scrutiny.
Personality... disciplined, formal, buttoned-up, earnest, and moral. While all of the Project Mercury astronauts are asked to portray a squeaky-clean image for the public, Glenn doesn’t need to act. He’s the epitome of a wholesome American hero. That makes him an ideal face for the mission, but doesn’t immediately ingratiate him with his slightly less self-righteous colleagues.
