(Columbus, OH) -- Former astronaut and U.S. Senator John Glenn is resting comfortably at his home in Columbus, Ohio following heart valve surgery. A spokesman for Ohio State University said the 92-year-old is doing well after undergoing the surgery at the Cleveland Clinic last month. Glenn was the first American to orbit the earth in 1962 and flew on the space shuttle Discovery in 1998. He served six terms in the U.S Senate. Glenn turns 93 in July.
