[i]Scott Carpenter's travels and work throughout his life took him everywhere from the depths of the ocean to the heights of space. But Saturday, many of the people he met on those journeys came back to remember him in Boulder, the place where he was born and raised.
"It's fitting we say goodbye to Scott in Boulder," said Tom Stoever, Carpenter's son-in-law. "This community stoked his desire to understand the world around him."
Hundreds gathered at St. John's Episcopal Church to remember Carpenter, the Boulder-bred astronaut who became just the second American to orbit the Earth when he piloted the Aurora 7 on May 24, 1962.[/i]
