 From Boston to space <javascript:openPlayer('Episode',423122);> WBZ's 
Laurie Kirby speaks exclusively with the crew of the International Space 
Station. During their chat, Commander Sunita Williams of Needham got a 
surprise call from her mother, Bonnie Pandya.

In an unusual interview on WBZ radio, reporter Laurie Kirby spoke with 
two astronauts aboard the International Space Station. Flight Engineer 
Sunita Williams and Commander Michael Lopez-Alegria took a break from 
their science experiments to talk with WBZ. During Wednesday’s 
interview, the astronauts talked about various topics such as the Red 
Sox and space walks. During the long distance phone call Williams, a 
Needham native, got a chance to talk with her mother, Bonnie Pandya of 
Cape Cod. “This is a little bit of a surprise but I am absolutely 
psyched to hear your voice.” Williams said.

Williams also talked about the record number of space walks she has 
done. “I believe there is a generation of explorers behind me that are 
going to shatter my record.” About her latest space walk she said, “It 
was just amazing to be outside…watching the world go by and watching the 
beautiful view of our planet.”

About her experience, Williams said, “life is wonderful up here.”
