Sunita Williams on Tuesday revived hopes on collaboration between National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) in space exploration missions.

On her visit to Kolkata at the invitation of National Council of Science Museums, the Indian-American astronaut said that she would not only meet with students, but would like to show them the opportunities in space research and missions.

“People (scientists) from NASA and ISRO are talking together. I see that progressing,” Williams told reporters when asked about the two organisations’ plans to cooperate on Moon and Mars missions in future.

India’s Mars Mission, which is scheduled to be launched in November this year, might be promising for the space research organisations to work together.
