Sunita Williams at Zephyr 2007

Sunita Williams, NASA Astronaut, gave a guest lecture at Zephyr 2007 on experiences of her recent space journey to the International Space Station (ISS), an aero festival organised by aerospace engineering department of IIT Bombay, Powai, on 6th October. It was an interactive session where the students were able to get the real scenario in the space.

Recently in her space journey to ISS, Sunita Williams had completed 195 days in space, which is the longest uninterrupted stay by a woman. Also, she holds the record for the maximum duration of space walk by a woman (29 hours and 17 minutes), because of the tasks she carried out outside the International Space Station. And she is the only astronaut to have run a marathon in space.

Sunita Williams in her address described her recent space journey to the ISS as “beautiful summer vacation”. During her address, she gave running lectures on a video footage taken in the ISS. She spoke about the ISS, the countries involved in the formation of the ISS, her zero gravity experience in the space station, kind of work in the space station, maintaining fitness in the space station, communication to the earth and finally about the return journey to the earth.

Her lecture had been taken as a video and posted in the following links. Watch the videos to get to know more about the happenings in the International Space Station.
