'Malcolm Scott Carpenter (May 1, 1925 – October 10, 2013) was an American test pilot, astronaut and aquanaut. He was one of the original seven astronauts selected for NASA's Project Mercury in April 1959. Carpenter was the second American to orbit the Earth and the fourth American in space, following Alan Shepard, Gus Grissom and John Glenn.'
He flew one space flight - before I was born. He died today at 88.
With Carpenter's death, John Glenn is now the last surviving member of the Mercury Seven.
