Very good, Lt. Col.!
Hope you'll be one of many who take us beyond LEO.

Ah.... to be 37 again..... :)

From the linked article: "Colonel Dutton’s initial technical assignment with NASA’s exploration branch is working on the development of the crew exploration vehicle cockpit."

Yep, he's in line.

One lucky guy...going form one cool project to the next. I mean some of us would kill to get to fly the Raptor, but to top that off with work on the CEV and flying some of those early missions? Wow!
