Rest in Peace to our Dynamic Pioneer
"Steely-Eyed Rocket Man" - Peggy Noonan, WSJ







The Flight of Aurora 7 as told in 1994 by the Astronauts themselves.

Scott Carpenter, a dynamic pioneer of modern exploration, has the unique distinction of being the first human ever to
penetrate both inner and outer space, thereby acquiring the dual title, Astronaut/Aquanaut.

Welcome to my web site. I hope that this site gives people of all ages some insight into the early manned space program of the late 1950's into the 1960's and how we approached the great unknown of the time. It is my pleasure to share these memories with you. Enjoy your trip with me.

 --- M. Scott Carpenter
