When John Glenn splashed down in the Carribean about the Friendship 7 capsule in 1962 his first landfall after being plucked out of the ocean was Gran Turk. Most of the flights in the early days of the Space Program ended here. There is a replica(?) of Friendship 7 that appears to be the real thing. It is amazing how tiny the capsule was.
