Malcolm Scott Carpenter is a former test pilot, astronaut, and aquanaut. He is best known as one of the original seven astronauts selected for Project Mercury in April 1959. Created by the newly formed NASA, Project Mercury was the United States' answer to the Soviet Union's space program. This rivalry eventually became the space race — a contest between the two superpowers to land the first men on the Moon and return them safely to Earth.

Scott Carpenter was the second American to orbit the Earth and the fourth American in space, following Alan Shepard, Gus Grissom, and John Glenn. Carpenter and Glenn are the last living members of the Mercury Seven as of May 2008.
