Sunita Williams Selected ‘Person Of The Week’

A leading USSunita Williams television network selected Indian-American astronaut Sunita Williams as 'Person of the Week' after she returned to Earth onboard shuttle Atlantis after a record 195-day stay in space.

On Saturday, the shuttle landed in safety at the Edwards Air Force Base in California after bad weather at the Kennedy Space Centre in Cape Canaveral pressured mission managers to leave out three landing efforts there.

After successful landing, NASA mission control congratulated Sunita and six other members of the Atlantis crew, and the ABC Television Network chose Sunita as ‘Person of the Week’.

Sunita began its journey from Cape Canaveral on December 9, 2006, which turns into the longest space journey by a woman.

During her stay in the space station, she worked with experiments across various fields, including human life sciences, physical sciences and Earth observation plus education and technology demonstrations.
