Friday afternoon, John Glenn will lie in repose at the Ohio Statehouse. The rotunda will be open to the public from 12-8 p.m. for people to pay their respects to the pioneering astronaut and longtime Ohio Senator.

A platoon of Marines will accompany John Glenn's casket in a procession from the rotunda to Ohio State University on Saturday, beginning just after noon. Following the procession, a memorial service will be held at the OSU Mershon Auditorium at 2 p.m.

Glenn died on December 8, 2016, in Columbus. He was 95. Here is our original tribute to Glenn from that day.
