Sunita Williams’ Second Space Mission



Sunita Williams spent 6 months at the International Space Station and was successful in coming up with new records. She was the commander of Expedition 33 on the International Space Station.



Williams took off on her space mission on 14 July from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. While returning after her expedition, Williams had yet another record to add to her professional career-the most spacewalking time by a female at 50 hours and 40 minutes over seven career excursions.



She caught the attention of the media and the entire world on whatever she did, whether it is carrying of Upanishads to space or voting for the US presidential election from space.



Sunita Williams is the Deputy Chief of the Astronaut Office at NASA, who holds the record of the longest spaceflight among female space travelers. She happens to be the second Indian-American woman who got the opportunity to go to space after the Late Kalpana Chawla.

2: Huja was not elected mayor by public election. He was appointed the position by the city council which he is a member of. Most people in Charlottesville have no idea that he is mayor because he wasn't elected in by the public.
