20 Years Ago on Oct. 29, 1998 -- John Glenn Returns to Space

October 29, 1998: At age 77, John Glenn became the oldest man (and first sitting Senator) to fly in space on Space Shuttle Discovery, STS-95. We did two updates as we got new photos and content updates; the news package link remained the same, so all I had to do was post a new photo:
All of the these were screenshots of the live page, so the ad lineups are 100% accurate.

[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the home page, which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998. I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
