Brand also commanded three space shuttle missions, logged 746 hours in space and more than 9,669 hours as a pilot.” Larry Cliatt, a NASA engineer, “presented a talk on sonic booms, a very loud sound people hear on the ground when an aircraft is flying supersonically.” (Image: Apollo-Soyuz Astronaut Vance Brand.
