The plaque for the MA-6 launch diorama. It reads


After two emotion-packed down-range flights and moths of preparation during which scheduled missions were scrubbed only minutes before launch, the world haled, "Godspeed, John Glenn," as he lifted off for his historic three-orbit flight around the Earth, February 20, 1962.


Glenn's spacecraft, Friendship 7, currently resides in the National Air & Space Museum.
