Sunita Williams to Visit NASA Glenn
 
 
Cleveland -- News media are invited to attend a post-flight mission briefing for employees with NASA astronaut and Ohio native Sunita Williams at NASA's Glenn Research Center on Monday, August 27, at 1 p.m.

As a member of the Expedition 14 crew aboard the International Space Station, Williams established a world record for females with four spacewalks totaling 29 hours and 17 minutes of extravehicular activity. She concluded her tour of duty as a member of the Expedition 15 crew, returning to Earth with the STS-117 space shuttle crew on June 22, 2007.

Williams, who holds the record for longest spaceflight by a woman, was born in Euclid, Ohio. She spent 195 days in space, 190 of them as a flight engineer aboard the station.

Williams will present a video of mission highlights and talk about her work on the space experiments designed and built at Glenn in Glenn's Administration Building Auditorium.

Williams will be available for a brief question and answer session with the news media from 2:30 to 2:45 p.m.

Media representatives interested in covering the event should contact Katherine Martin at 216-433-2406 by 10 a.m. Monday, August 27.
