NASA Announces Astronauts’ Appearance at Veterans Job Fair

NASA astronauts Joe Tanner and Dan Burbank will give job candidates their perspective Monday about using military experience to build careers at an employment fair exclusively for veterans.

The two spacewalkers will address participants during the Salute Our Heroes job fair and career expo in Hall 1A of the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City from 1 to 2:30 p.m. EST Monday, Nov. 6.

After their presentation, the astronauts will answer questions from attendees and the media. Tanner and Burbank were crewmembers on the Space Shuttle Atlantis mission to the International Space Station in September. Burbank is a captain in the U.S. Coast Guard, and Tanner is a former Navy pilot.
