Leo DeGreef is passionate about science and flying. He graduated from the Air Force Academy in 1979 with a physics degree and a pilot slot. After flying KC-135 tankers in the Air Force with his last job refueling the SR-71, Leo left the Air Force. He worked for NASA for about 10 years flying on the NASA DC-8 flying laboratory and working as a test director in the wind tunnels at Ames Research Center. Since then he has been able to pursue his interest in the human space flight program by working as a subcontractor to Lockheed Martin on the Artemis Program. He currently works on the Orion capsule in the Component Test Group assuring that all spacecraft components are properly tested before flight.
