About the author (2004)

Duane Edgar Graveline was born in Newport, Vermont on March 2, 1931. He graduated from the University of Vermont and the University of Vermont College of Medicine. After graduation, he served in the Air Force medical service and became a flight surgeon. He finished a medical residency at the Air Force school of aerospace medicine in 1960. He also received a master's degree in public health. On June 26, 1965, he was named one of six new scientist-astronauts, but was forced to resign less than two months later when his first wife filed for divorce because the agency wanted to avoid embarrassment. He practiced family medicine for nearly 20 years, but had his license revoked in 1994 due to allegations that he had sexually abused children. He continued to consult with NASA and wrote 15 books, including memoirs, science fiction novels, and works detailing his research into side effects of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs. He died on September 5, 2016 at the age of 85.
