Astro Girls: Sunita Williams


Indian born Sunita L. Williams was involved in two space missions, Expeditions 14/15 and 32/33 and has spent a total of 322 days in space on two missions; she ranks second on the all-time U.S. endurance list for females. With 50 hours and 40 minutes, she is second on the list of total cumulative spacewalk time by a female astronaut, after Peggy Whitson.

She worked in Moscow with the Russian Space Agency on the Russian contribution to the space station and with the first Expedition Crew. 

In addition, Williams, who has spent a total of 322 days in space on two missions, now ranks sixth on the all-time U.S. endurance list, and second all-time for a female astronaut.

She is currently training for the first post-certification mission of Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft – the second crewed flight for that vehicle – and her third long duration mission aboard the International Space Station.
