Capt. Daniel Burbank






Dr. Byron Lichtenberg has flown two space shuttle missions as a Payload Specialist. In this capacity, he represented over 100 scientists with experiments from all parts of the world. As the first non-NASA astronaut, Dr. Lichtenberg flew his first mission, SPACELAB 1, in 1983 aboard the shuttle "Columbia" where he spent 10 days in orbit conducting 72 different experiments in 5 scientific disciplines. During his second flight, ATLAS-1, in 1992 aboard the shuttle "Atlantis," Dr. Lichtenberg conducted 14 experiments during 9 days primarily studying the upper atmosphere and the sun. During this mission the crew created the first ever artificial aurora by firing a beam of electrons into the lower atmosphere to produce spots of light similar to, but much dimmer than the "Northern Lights." Dr. Lichtenberg received his bachelor of science degree from Brown University in 1969 in aerospace engineering. Following a tour of duty in the Air Force during which he flew 138 combat missions in Vietnam (earning 10 Air medals and 2 Distinguished Flying Crosses), he returned to graduate school at MIT. He received his Master of Science degree in mechanical engineering in 1975 and his Doctorate in biomedical engineering in 1979.    He was a founder of Payload Systems, Inc., a company that has provided hardware and flight support for MODE and MACE experiments for the Space Shuttle and International Space Station (ISS). They also were the first commercial user of the Mir Space Station, flying protein crystal growth experiments to Mir in the early 1990s. He is now President of Zero Gravity Corporation, founded to make parabolic, weightless aircraft flights available to the general public. He was a U.S. Air Force fighter pilot for 23 years, flying the F-4, F-100, and A-10, reaching the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the Massachusetts Air National Guard. He survived 238 combat missions during the Vietnam War, and received two Distinguished Flying Crosses, ten Air Medals, and numerous other decorations. He flew as a captain for Southwest Airlines and is now a professor at LeTourneau University in Longview Texas.

Captain Daniel Christopher Burbank, United States Coast Guard, is a veteran of two Space Shuttle missions. Burbank is the second Coast Guard astronaut after Bruce Melnick. Burbank was born in Manchester, Connecticut, and raised in Tolland, Connecticut, where he graduated from Tolland High School. He is a graduate of the United States Coast Guard Academy, where he earned his commission in 1985. In 1987, he went through flight training and became an instructor pilot, serving at Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City, Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod, and Coast Guard Air Station Sitka. He has a master's degree in aeronautical science from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Burbank reported to the Johnson Space Center in August 1996. After completing two years of training and evaluation, Burbank worked technical issues for the Astronaut Office Operations Planning Branch, and the International Space Station (ISS) Branch, and served as CAPCOM (spacecraft communicator) for both Space Shuttle and ISS missions. Twice flown, he served as a mission specialist on STS-106 (September 8–20, 2000) and STS-115 (September 9–21, 2006) logging over 23 days in space, and 7 hours and 11 minutes of EVA time. From January 2007 to December 2009 Burbank served as a Professor of Engineering at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy where he taught Astronomy, Aerodynamics, and Statics & Engineering Design. Burbank was assigned to ISS Expedition 29 and Expedition 30 aboard ISS beginning September 2011. Expedition 29 was launched to the ISS along with Russian cosmonauts Anton Shkaplerov and Anatoli Ivanishin on November 13, arriving at the station on November 16 via Soyuz TMA-22. This expedition spent 66 days in space. Expedition 30 Burbank then served as commander of Expedition 30, beginning in November 2011. Burbank, along with Shkaplerov and Ivanishin, returned to Earth on April 27, 2012 after spending an additional 158 days in space
