During his third space flight, Burbank completed 165 days in space as a member of the Expedition 29 and 30 crews. He has performed one spacewalk and spent 189 days in space.

Burbank and his crewmates, Expedition 30 Flight Engineers Anton Shkaplerov and Anatoly Ivanishin of the Russian Federal Space Agency, returned to Earth in their Soyuz TMA-22 spacecraft at 6:45 a.m. on April 27. The crew members spent the majority of their time aboard the complex performing science experiments and routine maintenance.

Burbank is a native of Yarmouthport, Mass., and a 1985 graduate of the United States Coast Guard Academy. After earning his commission, Burbank served in various roles as a Coast Guard officer before NASA selected him as an astronaut in 1996. He received a master of science degree from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in 1990.

To arrange an interview, news media representatives must contact Karen Svetaka at 281-483-8684 or karen.a.svetaka@nasa.gov by 1 p.m. on Wednesday, May. 9.

The interviews will be preceded by a feed of video b-roll material of Burbank and his mission at 5:30 a.m. The NASA Live Interview Media Service (LIMS) satellite will be used for the interviews. LIMS satellite parameters will be provided by NASA to confirmed clients.
