After Launching from Kennedy Space center in Florida, Glenn successfully completed a three-orbit mission around the Planet. The Mission lasted 4 hours, 55 minutes, and 23 seconds from launch to impact, and during it Glenn reached an orbital velocity of 17,500 miles hour and a maximum altitude of approximately 162 miles.
