Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 51 Commander Peggy Whitson of NASA discussed life and research and the records she is setting in a pair of in-flight interviews April 12 with the CBS Radio Network and CNN. Whitson, who already established the record for most spacewalks and most spacewalking hours by a female, will break the mark for most days in space by a U.S. astronaut. On April 24, she will surpass NASA’s Jeff Williams’ record of 534 days in orbit. Whitson is in the midst of a flight spanning almost 10 months on the station, her third long duration mission on the complex.
