Mercury astronaut Scott Carpenter dies at 88


According to the article, he died from complications of a stroke.

R.I.P., Scott. You were “up there,” and I was “down here” with my transistor radio glued to my ear.


May he rest in peace and perpetaul light shine upon him. May the God of all comfort be with those grieving.


Godspeed, Scott Carpenter.


The dreamer and romanticist of the Mercury astronauts. May he rest in peace.




In my prayers. God Bless
