Astronaut Sunita Williams wants to see the world from the moon. The Indian American (seen here in a NASA photo) who already holds the record for the longest space walk ever dreams of getting the moon’s eye view.
The Gulf News reports she shared her dreams with youth at the Nehru Science Center in Mumbai. She told the students one of them could break her space walk record.
“These are milestones that will be overcome by explorers of your generation. I was lucky to have been at the right place at the right time.” Williams said.
She said floating in space is something her young audience should all try saying “it’s really fun.” She called her parents her inspiration.
“My Dad left his home country, took a boat all the way to the US and didn’t know where his adventure would lead him. He met my mother of Slovenian descent and they had nothing when they started life together. My Mum worked her way higher to study in a business school.” Whatever Williams does, she says, “I always think, ‘will it make my mother proud’?”
