Indian-born NASA astronaut Sunita Williams expressed confidence in her return flight from space on Wednesday. Williams’s message from space comes days after the US space agency hinted at a possible extension of the Boeing Starliner’s space mission by 45 to 90 days. 

“I have a real good feeling in my heart that this spacecraft will bring us home, no problem,” NASA astronaut Sunita “Suni” Williams said during a live news conference from the International Space Station (ISS). This was the test crew’s first news conference since docking to the ISS over a month ago.

Underlining that ‘failure is not an option’, NASA astronaut Butch Wilmore said that the sole intention behind staying at ISS is to test the spacecraft. Wilmore and Williams were launched aboard Starliner from Florida on June 5 and docked the next day at the ISS.

“We’re absolutely confident,” Wilmore told reporters. “That mantra you’ve heard, failure is not an option.”
