(23 Nov. 2011) --- As NASA astronaut Dan Burbank, Expedition 30 commander, talks to JSC's Mission Control Center, his live picture appears on a screen at the front of the facility. Flowers, adorning a console in the foreground, were sent by the Shelton/Murphy families for Thanksgiving in honor of the station crew members and the flight control team. The North Texas residents have been sending flowers to Mission Control since the first post-Challenger mission -- STS-26 -- in 1988. Photo credit: NASA
