ANTHONY WAYNE ENGLAND (b. 1942) is a former NASA astronaut who was selected in 1967 as part of a group of astronauts who served as backups during the Apollo and Skylab programs. Like most others in his class, he flew during the Space Shuttle program, serving as a mission specialist on STS-51F in 1985. England has logged more than 3,000 hours of flying time and 188 hours in space.He helped develop and use radars to probe the Moon on Apollo 17 and glaciers in Washington and Alaska, and participated in and led field parties during two seasons in Antarctica. Anthony England is currently dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan's Dearborn campus. Australian-born PHILIP KENYONCHAPMAN (b. 1935) was selected as a scientist-astronaut by NASA in 1967. After initial academic training and a 53-week course in flight training at Randolph Air Force Base, Texas, he was involved in preparations for lunar missions, serving as mission scientist for the Apollo 14 mission. Because of the lack of space flight opportunities for scientist-astronauts, Dr. Chapman left NASA in July 1972. Flight surgeon DUANE EDGAR GRAVELINE (b. 1931) is one of the foremost experts on weightlessness deconditioning, experimenting with the practice during his research with NASA and the U.S. Air Force. He first began studying the process while studying at the Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory, and has continued to study it in recent years. He also served in mission control during the Mercury and Gemini space programs and was trained as an astronaut (1965), but ultimately chose not to travel to space and instead return to private medical practice. The surgeon has published a prolific amount of medical works based on his studies with NASA and the Air Force, and has recently had a particular focus on statin drug research. In addition to his more serious writing, Graveline also enjoys writing science fiction novels. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
