  • Description

    "FRIENDSHIP 7", THE CAPSULE IN WHICH AMERICAN COLONEL JOHN GLENN MADE THREE ORBITS OF THE EARTH FEBRUARY 20 LAST, ARRIVED IN RIO DE JANIERO, BRAZIL, MAY 6, AT THE BEGINNING OF A WORLD TOUR.

    THOUSANDS OF CURIOUS PEOPLE PACKED THE EXHIBITION GROUND IN THE CENTRE OF THE CITY AS THE CAPSULE ARRIVED FROM THE AIRPORT ABOARD A HUGE TRAILER. THE EXHIBITION WILL INCLUDE PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE COLONEL'S HISTORIC FLIGHT, AND ITEMS OF EQUIPMENT USED BY HIM.

    THE CAPSULE WILL BE PLACE ON EXHIBITION IN ALL THE MAJOR CITIES OF THE NON-COMMUNIST WORLD, INCLUDING LONDON. UNFORTUNATELY, BECAUSE HIS SERVICES ARE NEEDED IN CONNECTION WITH OTHER AMERICAN MANNED SPACE-FLIGHT PROJECTS, COLONEL GLENN IS NOT ACCOMPANYING THE CAPSULE.
