Great post Richard, looking at these Life covers sure does bring back a ton of memories from my younger days! I was struck by the John Glenn cover, it made me flashback to the book The Right Stuff--and the intense rivalry among the early astronauts.

I love old Life magazines! If I had a library full of them, I'd probably waste days and days going through them.
