Sunita Williams to pilot Boeing Starliner spacecraft on May 7th

  • Indian-origin astronaut Captain Sunita Williams is set to fly into space again, this time aboard the Boeing Starliner spacecraft.
  • The liftoff is scheduled for May 7, 2024, from the Kennedy Space Center at 8.04 am India time.
  • Despite some nervousness, Williams is excited about the mission and has no reservations about flying in a new spacecraft.
  • During training at the launch pad, Williams expressed her anticipation, likening her arrival at the International Space Station to “going back home.”
  • Born to Dr. Deepak Pandya and Bonnie Pandya, Williams, aged 59, will be the first woman to fly on a maiden mission of a new human-rated spacecraft, creating history.
  • As a qualified navy test pilot, she has previously flown to space in 2006 and 2012, accumulating a total of 322 days in space.
  • Williams once held the record for the most spacewalk time by a female astronaut, with 50 hours and 40 minutes across seven spacewalks.
  • However, this record has since been surpassed by Peggy Whitson, who completed 10 spacewalks.
