Mercury Astronaut and Club Fellow Scott Carpenter passes away at 88

We are sad to report that Scott Carpenter FN’67, has passed at age 88. He was awarded The Legendary Explorers Medal with fellow Mercury astronaut Senator John Glenn at our Annual Dinner this past year. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Scott’s wife, Pat, and all others in his immediate family.
