    1985 USCGA grad Dan Burbank will take command of the International Space Station when the Soyuz rocket (launched today) docks with the ISS tomorrow.

    PS - notice the Angry Bird in the capsule.

    I had the privilege of hearing CAPT Burbank speak many moons ago at AIM...good stuff.
    Apparently he's also in a band comprised only of astronauts. That's kinda cool.
