As the world watched in awe, John Glenn escaped gravity and became the first American to orbit the earth in 1962. It is this same spirit of exploration and relentless curiosity that endures today – enabling us to push the boundaries of space and science.
A humble part of American and space exploration history, the Goodrich Company, now part of United Technologies, provided the innovative full pressure space suits that protected Mr. Glenn and the Mercury Seven astronauts in their endeavors.
The same unyielding innovation and curiosity persists today as United Technologies continues to encourage thousands of employees to pursue their own dreams through lifelong learning. With gratitude. John Glenn 1921-2016
