Good to read your post, spacecat, and welcome to the collectSPACE community!

Small world indeed, if you know both Bob Barth and Paul the gardener of Corona St. and environs. Paul is a great guy and Barth a legend.

The DP is off to England today, but I'll send him the updated thread when he gets back. He's called the DP because on a google search in this internet-driven age all a well-meaning researcher can find is some lame-o biographical data that dates back to the 1980s, describing Carpenter as among other things (if memory serves) as "a dynamic pioneer of space and sea..."

With his trademark irreverence, Duke of URL started referring to Carpenter as the Dynamic Pioneer, or the DP for short. That lame-o artifact from a pre-internet age in fact is what is largely fueling the effort to build a decent website for Scott Carpenter. I think, in a nod to this deathless prose, we'll have to call it Scott Carpenter: Dynamic Pioneer of...

Taking submissions now. And, no, he can't be pioneer of most totaled sports cars.

[on edit: Carpenter's Shelby was not a Mustang, btw, but a Shelby Cobra, aluminum body, made in England, sort of like an MG, metalflake blue!]

Happy 85th birthday to the Dynamic Pioneer himself. Wishing you a happy and healthy year with nothing but good things ahead. I hope that I look half as good if I even ever make it close to 85.

No dancing on the tables, though. The tips usually aren't worth it.

Happy Birthday! It's a good thing you've had such healthy lungs - you'll need them to blow out all those candles.
