He was one of the first to attend the U.S. Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine and worked for NASA, where he helped select astronauts and monitor crews while in space. All told, he helped send 42 individuals into space over 30 missions, including the Apollo 11 mission during which Neil Armstrong walked on the Moon.
