Sunita Lyn "Suni" Williams is a NASA astronaut. She was assigned to the International Space Station as a member of Expedition 14 and then joined Expedition 15. Williams is the second woman of Indian heritage to have been selected by NASA for a space mission after Kalpana Chawla and also the second astronaut of Slovenian heritage after Ronald M. Sega. She holds three records for female space travelers: longest spaceflight (188 days and counting), number of space walks (four), and total time spent on spacewalks (29 hours and 17 minutes).
I’m sure this will encourage and inspires more women in our county (and anywhere in the world) to join hi tech studies, engineering and other fields :)
