Unlike their Soviet counterparts, the first American astronauts became worldwide celebrities and their lives (and deaths) marked the meaning of "astronaut" for the public. The romantic aura of astronaut as a profession still exists, and it was inspired by men like John Glenn and the other pilots who volunteered for the Mercury project.

Fly safe, commander, senator and astronaut Glenn. o7

Fly safely, Commander John Glenn... you are the original "capsuleer".
