Mercury-Atlas 6 (Friendship 7) Original Ground Control Data Strip Recording of John Glenn's EKG. Quite an interesting and historic item. A 12.75" x 16" section of continuous-feed graph paper showing data readings of eight different parameters as taken during the end of Glenn's third earth orbit, shortly before re-entry. Personal readings showing Glenn's physical condition are: Breathing, EKG, and Body Temperature. Readings showing the spacecraft's condition are: "Retro Attitude, Retro Firing, Retro Jettison, Retro Rocket Temperature, and Impact Deployment. Handwritten period notes along the top read: "Tracked over Florida J Glenn end of 3d orbit - Feb 20, 1962..." Parameters are named in ink along the right side. A great and unique period relic from America's first orbital space mission. Paper is carbon-backed and there are numerous extraneous marks and a small piece is torn off but present, good overall.
