Today we celebrate Sunita “Suni” Williams, Navy officer & NASA astronaut who participated in ISS expeditions 14, 15, 32 & 33, serving as ISS Commander for her final expedition. Suni has spent a total of 321 days 17 hours 15 minutes in space, which is surprising given her encounter with becoming an astronaut is famously one of pure “happenstance.”
