▀▀▀Has anyone heard of the Ustica Gold Trident? This award appears on the official bio of astronaut M. Scott Carpenter, and I have been unable to find any other reference to it.
Try for yourself. Use any Internet search engine such as Google, and search for the text string "Ustica Gold Trident." The only pages that come up refer to Carpenter.
I suspect this award has something to do w ith diving, but I still don't understand what it is or who awarded it. Any ideas?
