New York City will salute astronaut John Glenn, who is getting the second ticker-tape parade, celebrating his achievements in space, New York’s Daily News reports. Glenn, 77, became the world’s oldest space traveler when he and six crewmates lifted off aboard the Discovery on Oct. 29. They returned on Nov. 7 and will all ride up the city’s Canyon of Heroes on Monday. It’ll be the second such honor for Glenn, who was showered with ticker-tape after becoming the first American to orbit earth in 1962.
