Third Time's the Charm!

Indian-born astronaut Sunita Williams is ready to launch into space for the third time tonight (June 1st) after a previous launch attempt was scrubbed on May 7th.

Aboard the Boeing Starliner

This mission marks the first crewed flight of the Boeing Starliner spacecraft. It will carry Sunita Williams and pilot Barry "Butch" Wilmore to the International Space Station (ISS).

Destination: International Space Station

Following a successful mission, the Starliner will be certified for regular crew rotations to the ISS as part of NASA's Commercial Crew Program.

A Role Model Takes Flight

Sunita Williams is an inspiration to women aspiring to become astronauts. This mission could see her become the first woman to fly on a new space shuttle's maiden crewed mission.

A Seasoned Astronaut

Sunita Williams is no stranger to space. She has already spent a total of 322 days in space and previously held the record for most spacewalk hours by a woman (later surpassed by Peggy Whitson).

A Historic First Mission

Sunita Williams' first spaceflight began in December 2006 and set a record for most spacewalks completed by a woman on a single mission (4 spacewalks totaling 29 hours and 17 minutes).

Testing the Starliner

This 10-day mission will assess the Starliner's capabilities and ensure the team is ready for longer-duration missions with NASA certification.

Overcoming Challenges

The May 7th launch attempt was scrubbed due to a suspected valve issue on the launch vehicle. Teams have replaced the valve and addressed a minor helium leak in the Starliner.

Launch Time!

The launch is scheduled for 10 PM IST from Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Stay tuned for updates on this historic mission!
