So as I am typing this, Tim Peake, the first Briton to join the ESA astronaut corps, is doing a spacewalk at the space station. Before he joined the ESA, he was in the British Army Air Corps. His rank when he went on reserve? Major.

In other words, he could have easily said:

This is Major Tim to Ground Control
I'm stepping through the door

Cool, in more than a few ways.
