FLORIDA: Indian-origin astronaut Sunita Williams has once again reached the International Space Station (ISS). Sunita reached the ISS along with her companion Butch Wilmore. In a video released by NASA, Sunita can be seen dancing her way to the International Space Station (ISS), as the Boeing Starliner spacecraft successfully docked to the orbital laboratory.

“Docking confirmed! @BoeingSpace's Starliner docked to the forward-facing port of the @Space_Station's Harmony module. NASA astronauts Butch Wilmore and Suni Williams will spend about a week. That feeling when you're back on the station!” NASA said in a post on X.

Boeing Starliner spacecraft successfully docked at the ISS at 1.07 Indian time, about 26 hours after launching from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, NASA said in a statement.

Later, the seven Expedition 71 crew members gathered with the two crew flight test members for a team portrait aboard the space station.

As part of the agency’s Commercial Crew Programme, the mission is the first crewed flight for the Starliner spacecraft. The Starliner mission aims to carry astronauts and cargo for future NASA missions to low Earth orbit, and beyond. The crew flight test aims to certify the spacecraft for routine space travel to and from the space station.
