Happy birthday, Daniel Burbank, Space Shuttle, Soyuz and ISS astronaut!
Daniel Christopher Burbank, born July 27, 1961 in Connecticut, is a veteran of two Space Shuttle missions (both on Atlantis) and a Soyuz mission (TMA-22). Both space shuttle flights took him to the International Space Station, where he helped prepare the ISS for permanent inhabitants.
The Soyuz mission took him back to the ISS in September 2011 and he stayed until April 2012.
