NASA Astronaut Suni Williams Answers Student Questions | International Space Station

NASA Astronaut Suni Williams Answers Student Questions | International Space Station

NASA astronaut Suni Williams discussed living and working in space as part of the Crewed Flight Test (CFT) of the Boeing Starliner spacecraft during an in-flight interview with the Sunita L. Williams Elementary School in Needham, Massachusetts on June 10, 2024. 

Williams is an alumnus of the school and is the midst of completing a test flight to check out Starliner’s systems ahead of spacecraft certification. Williams will remain at the space station for about a week to complete a series of test objectives before departing the complex for a landing in the southwestern United States alongside NASA astronaut Butch Wilmore.
