The chimpanzee completed two orbits before safely splashing down about 200 miles south of Bermuda. Enos removed the medical sensors and catheter before being recovered by the USS Stormes over three hours later. The mission qualified the Mercury spacecraft for the historic orbital flight of John Glenn aboard Friendship 7.

Enos died of dysentery of November 4, 1962. The Mercury-Atlas 5 spacecraft is held by the Smithsonian Institution and displayed at the Museum of Life and Science in Durham, North Carolina.
