He was subsequently assigned to the joint USA/USSR Apollo-Soyuz Test Project, and from 1973 to 1977 worked as deputy director and director of the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center. He went on to found two private companies, applying his technological expertise in the arena of commercial space, and has also acted as technical adviser on the film Apollo 13 and Tom Hanks's award-winning series From the Earth to the Moon.
