I was only a little kid when Astronaut Carpenter did what everyone called the right stuff! I always appreciated working for NASA as a contractor. I've never seen a live launch but in the MER I watched many shuttle launches and worked in mission support of crew members on the International Space Station. Crew members like Scott were the pioneers who laid the foundation for Space Exploration. May he enjoy his launch into heaven where he will meet the final and ultimate space exploration of his eternal path. God's speed to a space explorer and now a man of the heavens.
