This Day In Astro History

April 27

2013 - At 3:47 a.m. EDT Fermi's Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered on an eruption of high-energy light in the constellation Leo, with an energy of at least 94 billion electron volts (GeV), or some 35 billion times the energy of visible light, and about three times greater than the previous record.

2012 - Expedition 30 lands safely in Kazakhstan. Commander Dan Burbank, Soyuz Commander Anton Shkaplerov and Anatoly Ivanishin completed almost six months in space.
