Mike Barnicle on the illustrious legacy of astronaut John Glenn

Morning Joe’s Joe Scarborough and Mike Barnicle discuss the illustrious legacy of astronaut John Glenn, who died December 8, 2016, at the age of 95. Says Barnicle: "The rockets that we see on TV today or have seen in the past, those rockets allowed the rocket that took John Glenn into space for the first time as an American around the earth. That rocket was loud, but John Glenn was not loud. His service, his career was humble and quiet. On the day that rocket left the Earth on February 1962 at Cape Canaveral…much of the country listened to it on radio. Gathered around radios in gas stations and school auditoriums. TV was nowhere what it is today. John Glenn remained true to who he was, the spirit of his life and the spirit of his service until the day he died. Hear more on Glenn from Barnicle, Scarborough and presidential historian Michael Beschloss, who together weave into context the significance of Glenn’s iconic moment and life for younger generations.
