Indian-origin astronaut Sunita Williams is back in space today. Sunita Williams will jump into space on NASA's Boeing Starliner probe. The Boeing Star Liner is flying today after the fault in the launch vehicle has been completely resolved. Boeing Star Liner will be launched from the Kennedy Space Center at 9.55 PM IST. The space flight was canceled at the last minute on May 7 after a fault was found in the launch vehicle. The re-launch was decided today after the glitches were fully resolved. Sunita Williams' partner is Butch Wilmore.

Travelers will stay on the International Space Station for seven days after launch. NASA had given permission to Boeing and SpaceX to send tourists into space on a commercial basis. Space has already started trips that take travelers into space. Boeing's mission comes after a long wait. The purpose of this mission is to test the mission to take travelers into space, deposit them on the space station, and bring them back. 58-year-old Sunita's first space flight was in December 2006. Sunita Williams, who returned to space in 2012, currently holds the record for the longest time in space.
