ISS Commander Astronaut Dan Burbank Returning to Earth April 27, 2012

Students joined Burbank @ISS 
Expedition 30 Commander Dan Burbank reflects upon his upcoming return to Earth April 27, 2012 aboard the Soyuz TMA-22- along with Flight Engineers Anatoly Ivanishin and Anton Shkaplerov - and his experiences of living and working aboard the International Space Station.

During the course of the astronaut Burbank's command, he has encouraged thousands of students to pursue STEM-education. The largest gathering of students to join the Expedition 30 mission segment came from over 4,000 students gathering at the University of Virginia's College at Wise. The logo shirt from the downlink will be sent to Burbank in Houston, Texas on April 27th by the Southwestern Virginia Technology Council which was the lead sponsor of the downlink.
