During the 10 minute interview, collectSPACE editor Robert Pearlman spoke with Williams about her nearly 100 days aboard the station, her upcoming second Expedition 33 spacewalk, the approaching 12th anniversary of humans living aboard the orbiting laboratory and the prospects of crews spending a year rather than six months on the ISS.

Other discussion topics included the recent arrival of SpaceX's Dragon capsule, the scheduled Halloween (Oct. 31) docking of a Russian Progress spacecraft, the launch of her next three crewmates and the delivery of 32 fish to the station as part of a Japanese aquatic life experiment.

collectSPACE will be adapting the interview for upcoming articles, as well as provide a transcript and archived video for those unable to watch live.

KSCartistI can't think of anything you haven't already Robert.


LM-12Could you talk a bit about the experience of EVA?
Apollo14LMPRobert, you are a very lucky man - your job has to be a labour of love!

Looking forward to seeing ISS pass over Liverpool UK tonight cloud permitting.

GlintGreat interview, Robert! Thanks for the link so we could follow along.
Robert PearlmanThanks to those who tuned in this morning!

The archived video of the live interview is now presented above. Look for the first in a series of related articles to run on Monday (Oct. 22).

RobonautBrilliant Robert. I could not be at home for the live interview but I have just seen the archived interview. Good questions and it was nice to see that Suni enjoyed them as well.

Madon_spaceI second what Robonaut posted, great interview with some really good questions.
Thanks Robert for giving us folk on the other side of the pond the chance to see this.
TomGreat job Robert, covering so many different topics!

By the way... just realized what was posted on Suni's laptop in the photo above... very clever.

ilbassoGreat questions, Robert! Suni was obviously impressed at getting questions that were well thought-out, from someone who obviously knew what he was talking about.

Space station commander reflects on 100 days in orbit

There's no place like home.

For NASA astronaut Sunita "Suni" Williams, who Monday evening (Oct. 23) will mark her 100th day in space since lifting off in July, the International Space Station (ISS) has become her and her two Expedition 33 crewmates' home.

"It's definitely our home at this point in time," Williams told in a televised interview from on board the station.

mjanovecRobert's interview with Suni Williams has been playing regularly on NASA TV this week, as part of their Video File programming. Obviously, NASA was impressed enough with the interview that they want to re-play it often.
