Plans for a museum honoring the first American to orbit Earth are getting off the ground in John Glenn's hometown of Concord, Ohio.
Community leaders voted last week to buy an abandoned building that could be a museum site.Glenn supporters came up with the plan after Glenn announced last year that he will retire from the U.S. Senate. NASA announced in January that Glenn will make his second space flight this fall, on the space shuttle Discovery.
