Hyderabad, Sep 28 (UNI) Yearning to go back to the space and experience the 'borderless' world, Indian-American Astronaut Sunita Williams of the NASA today offered to share her expertise with India, which was toying with the idea of sending a person to the Moon in the future.

Describing space as a ''wonderful place to live in'', she told a press conference here on the concluding day of the 58th International Aeronautical Congress that her immediate task was to continue her scientific experiments, which she had carried during her stay in the International Space Station back in the NASA.

Stating that she wanted to be a part of future Mars mission, she said ''I am absolutely exicted to be a part of the long journey to Mars.'' The flowing of blood in human body in space give an indication on movement of fluids in space and designing of future engines and fuel tanks, Williams added.

Replying to a question, she said she did not feel isolated while in Space as she was communicating with her colleagues in NASA.

Answering to another question, the lady said it did not matter whether a man or woman was sent to space. She would prefer another Indian woman to travel to space instead of herself.

Williams wants to be a part of an international partnership which would opportunity for more people to go to space and continue the human race there and sustain the fragile earth.

''The earth is not big enough to support a large number of people. It is logical to find some place elsewhere and prosper, Williams added.
