But this time he will not be riding in the familiar confines of a NASA space shuttle — the fleet was retired in 2011 — but in a capsule atop a Soyuz TMA-12 rocket launching from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Not only will he blast off from there, he is slated to land in the capsule, which is somewhat similar to a NASA Apollo capsule, on the steppe of Kazakhstan in September after spending roughly six months in space.
Swanson, who earned a bachelor’s degree in engineering physics from CU-Boulder in 1983, will serve as flight engineer for Expedition 39, which already will be underway on the ISS when he arrives. In late May, Swanson, who considers Steamboat Springs, Colo., his hometown, will become space station commander as Expedition 40 begins.
Swanson will be launched to the ISS along with cosmonauts Alexander Skvortsov and Oleg Artemyev of the Russian Federal Space Agency.
“We’ve trained extensively and I’m confident I can do all of the tasks assigned to me on the space station,” Swanson said. “The difficult part is being away from my family and friends for a long period. I’ll miss them, but at the same time we will be very busy up there, which makes the time pass quickly.”
The astronaut crew will be involved in dozens of research experiments in the low gravity of the ISS, including efforts related to protein crystal growth, capillary blood flow, gravity sensing by plants and muscle and bone loss changes in space.
As part of his duties, Swanson will operate hardware developed by BioServe Space Technologies located in CU-Boulder’s aerospace engineering department to conduct two experiments on the space station, both being launched later this year. One led by Dr. Timothy Hammond of the Department of Veterans Affairs will use a yeast-based assay system to evaluate known and novel anti-cancer drug therapies in the low gravity of space. A second led by Professor Cheryl Nickerson of Arizona State University will evaluate host-pathogen interactions to better understand the risk of in-flight infections by space explorers during long-term missions.
Swanson previously flew on the STS-17 mission aboard the space shuttle Atlantis to the ISS in June 2007, then flew again on the STS-19 mission aboard Discovery in March 2009. Swanson spacewalked for more than 26 hours during the two missions and is tentatively slated for two more spacewalks during Expedition 39 and Expedition 40.
What does Swanson, whose two shuttle landings were on a smooth NASA runway in Florida, think about drifting by parachute in the Soyuz space capsule on the way from the space station back to Earth, eventually banging onto the ground in Kazakhstan? “I know this landing will be much more wild and exciting than a shuttle landing,” he said. “It is going to be a very different experience, and I’m looking forward to it.”
Swanson will be packing several CU mementos, including a T-shirt, a flag and a small piece of sandstone from the engineering center that has been engraved with a picture of Ralphie the Buffalo and an image of the International Space Station.
What does he recall about his time at CU-Boulder? “I remember waking up and seeing the mountains right there,” he said. “It was a beautiful thing, and helped me get going every day. I really liked CU-Boulder — it is a good school, with good professors — and I love to ski, I love to hike. I like the culture.”
His favorite times on the space station? “One of the best things is when you have a moment to yourself where you can just look out the window,” he said. Swanson also said he will spend what little free time he has emailing with family and friends back on Earth, blogging about his space station experiences and hopefully participating in a Google Hangout, sharing messages and photos and video-chatting with CU-Boulder students.
Eighteen CU-Boulder astronaut-affiliates have flown 47 NASA space missions beginning with Scott Carpenter in 1962.
Former NASA astronaut Jim Voss, who received his master’s degree in aerospace engineering sciences from CU-Boulder in 1974, currently is a CU-Boulder Scholar in Residence. Former NASA astronaut Joe Tanner currently is a senior instructor in aerospace engineering.

This law suit stands about as much chance of sucess as a snows chance in hell. First of all Both Scott and Allen are hugely public figures, sports heros, on TV etc. In fact we have interviewed both of them in the early 90s on radio. So private citizens they are not. THEY ARE PUBLIC FIGURES. Claiming defamation by a noted sports journalist and press by those two will be next to impossible to prove.
In fact this hullabaloo will do nothing but sell books and make these two world athletes even more popular. Now we want the book and so should you.
This begs the question did Allen, Scott, their attorneys and Velo Press publicity department conjure this publicity stunt to sell books?
It has been done before. It is also illegal as hell to defraud the courts with a bogus suit. We’ll see about that. On the other hand these two sports heros may just be spoiled brats acting out in court trying to suppress a free press: an even dumber move.
Maybe it went something like this: They didn’t like the way they were portrayed so they are now trying to suppress the account. So what, the author said they must be crazy to compete in the Iron man?? No shit. Do you have any idea what the Iron man is like?? We asked the same question of them back in 1990? Are you guys crazy???
Hey Velo send us a copy. Dave and Scott: any chance you might autograph it for us?? haha
No seriously folks , we are sure Dave and Scott are fine upstanding sports super heros and it is completely normal to want to run 35 miles, swim 100 miles and ride a bike 1000 miles ?? That’s not psychologically unstable at all….No. Good thing these two super sports heros didn’t play football in the NFL and tried to pull this law suit crap there? Was refrigerator Perry unbalanced?? How about the Boz?? Or in cycling Did Lance Armstrong do steroids. ?? What about Dave or Scott?? Were they ever tested for roids.? Does the Iron Man have a drug test policy?? Anyway , we can’t wait for the trial. It ‘s going to be a sanity hearing. Maybe a cry fest. These two aren’t acting like tough Iron Men. They are acting like Pussies.
Iron men don’t call a lawyer to fight they’re battles. Real Iron men rap the reporter right in the mouth or throw him in the pool or something. But hiring a scumbag lawyer to sue is chicken shit. Straight up. Now grow up you two and take it. Stop acting like a couple of BMW driving whine bag tri-atheletes.

The last time any Jann Scott show had this kind of time period on Television was in 2005 at the old CATV 54. Two shows played then under the name of Jann Scott Tonight and Jann Scott Live. Neilson showed the Scott with a whopping 7. ratings or 5000 people nitely in Boulder ahead of Channel 7, 9, or 4 News. In television it is the shows that people watch not channels. That is why FOX was able to beat the other networks when they launched in the 1990s. People wanted to see the Simpsons and they went to FOX by the millions to see it. The Simpsons of course is on in prime time.
The next few months should tell. Demand for Jann Scott at prime time has always been high. Since 2006 he has been buried. Many people thought Scott left local TV but in fact he was on channel 54 in bad times until 2007. Then he went to CET 5 all over Colorado with a show called Colorado Magazine, but Comcast gave their weekly local show hideous time periods.
The new show 22Boom is terrific. It features music videos, viral pieces from Youtube, Hot shots movie reviews with longtime TV personality Dan Culberson. Jann Scott Live segments are included as well as a news parody hosted by a sexy CU intern. It’s classic Jann Scott. He has always given Boulder a high sense of entertainment, education, knowing and discussion.
22 Boom’s Fast Times Special has lots in store. First up it’s World News with Heather Loser who reports about Internet Media, then we learn about Mardi Gras, Ash Wednesday and Lent, also How to Celebrate St. Patricks Day, Baking with Scott Irish Soda Bread, Frozen Dead Guy Daze in Nederland and we wrap the show up with Video Blogs Hotshots Movie Review of Cedar Rapids and Jann Scott Live Cats and Oil.
