    News is coming through the wires that Mercury Astronaut Scott Carpenter has died.

    Carpenter once remarked: "I volunteered for a number of reasons...One of these, quite frankly, was that I thought this was a chance for immortality. Pioneering in space was something I would willingly give my life for.”

    What are your memories of Carpenter and of the Mercury Program?
