Astronaut Sunita Williams aims for Sonoma Speaker Series
The Sonoma Speakers Series is taking note of the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing, which took place on July 20, 1969. Their recognition takes the form of a visit from Sunita “Suni” Williams, one of a handful of women astronauts who, while she hasn’t yet gone to the moon, has done a record seven walks in space and commanded the International Space Station’s Expedition 33.
Sunita “Suni” Williams is a pilot, engineer, runner, swimmer, lover of pets and an astronaut. She is also a great role model for anyone interested in space exploration.
She will speak at Hanna Boys Center Auditorium on Monday, Aug. 19, at 7 p.m.
Williams will be introduced by Sonoma resident and former NASA astronaut Rusty Schweickart and will be in conversation with her Annapolis classmate and friend, Bill Angeloni, also a Sonoma resident and board member of the Sonoma Valley Education Foundation.
