Statesville native and NASA Astronaut Tom Marshburn has been working on a number of experiments aboard the International Space Station since December 2012 and will be returning to earth in May .... and, hopefully, to Statesville soon thereafter – where it will all come together!!!

Marshburn was born in Statesville, NC, and has enthusiastically claimed our City as his hometown. He returned to Statesville in 2009 to celebrate and talk about his first shuttle mission that included three spacewalks.

While he was here, Statesville honored him by titling the City as the official “Hometown of NASA Astronaut Dr. Thomas H. Marshburn.” Many roadside welcome signs around Statesville now include that slogan. Click here to listen to Statesville Mayor Kutteh's final interview with Tom Marshburn Keep up with the mission on the NASA TV website.
