Ohio is home to pioneers in many fields. One of the areas in which Ohioans have blazed new trails is spaceflight. According to NASA, 24 astronauts are Ohio natives, with another 10 astronauts calling the Buckeye State home at one point in their lives. Here are some of the most notable Ohio astronauts:

John Glenn:  Glenn, a New Concord native, was the first American to orbit the Earth in 1962. Glenn returned to space in 1998 at the age of 77, becoming the oldest American to travel into space. Glenn also served the people of Ohio in the United States Senate from 1974 to 1999.

Neil Armstrong:  On July 20, 1969, Wapakoneta native Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon as part of the Apollo 11 mission.

Jim Lovell: Lovell, who was born in Cleveland, participated in four spaceflight missions. The most notable of these missions was Apollo 13, which suffered an explosion while on the way to the moon but was brought back safely to Earth.

Judith Resnick: Resnick was selected for NASA’s astronaut program in 1978 and participated in the first voyage of the Space Shuttle Discovery. Resnick, who was born in Akron, was a mission specialist aboard Space Shuttle Challenger flight STS-51-L when the orbiter exploded 73 seconds after liftoff killing all seven crew members.
