The first American to orbit the Earth will be heading back to space — at least in name — atop a modern version of the rocket on which he made history. Orbital ATK on Thursday (March 9) revealed that its next Cygnus cargo spacecraft bound for the International Space Station has been christened the S.S. John Glenn. The ship, named for the late Mercury astronaut and U.S. Senator, will deliver science experiments and supplies to the station.
