Lt. Col. John H. Glenn's Mercury capsule Friendship 7 bobs gently in the Atlantic swell 210 miles north-west of San Juan, capital of Puerto Rico, waiting to be recovered by the American destroyer Noa, 2,425 tons. The time taken for the Colonel's three orbits of the earth, from launching to landing, was for hours 36 minutes.
