Until his transfer in 1992, he served as a Shuttle launch and landing operations engineer, a pilot in the Shuttle Avionics Integration Laboratory, and chief of the Operations Development Office, Flight Crew Operations Directorate. Selected by NASA in May 1996, Williams again reported to JSC in August 1996. After completing two years of training and evaluation, he performed technical duties in the Spacecraft Systems Branch and later in the Space Station Operations Branch on temporary assignment to Marshall Space Flight Center. In May 2000, he served as the flight engineer and lead spacewalker on STS-101. Subsequently he served in the EVA Branch of the Astronaut Office, led the development of the cockpit upgrade requirements for the Space Shuttle, and completed a temporary assignment at NASA Headquarters in support of legislative affairs. In July 2002, Williams commanded a nine-day undersea coral reef expedition operating from the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration’s Aquarius habitat off the coast of Florida. In November 2002, he began training for a long-duration expedition on the International Space Station (ISS) shuttling between JSC and Star City, Russia. Williams was the backup Commander and Soyuz Flight Engineer for the 12th Expedition to the ISS launched on September 30, 2005. In 2006 he served as Expedition 13 Flight Engineer aboard the ISS.

SPACE FLIGHT EXPERIENCE: STS-101 Atlantis(May 19-29, 2000) was the third Shuttle mission devoted to International Space Station (ISS) construction. Objectives included transporting and installing over 5,000 pounds of equipment and supplies, and included Williams’ first EVA (space walk) lasting nearly 7 hours. The mission was accomplished in 155 orbits of the Earth, traveling 4.1 million miles in 236 hours and 9 minutes.

The Expedition 13 crew was launched on March 29, 2006 on the Russian Soyuz TMA 8 from Baikonur, Kazakhstan, docking with the station on March 31, 2006. During 6-months tour of duty aboard the ISS, in addition to station maintenance and some science activities, Williams performed two successful spacewalks logging 12 hours and 25 mins of EVA wearing both Russian and U.S. spacesuits, and also saw the arrival of two space shuttle missions, the resumption of construction of the orbiting laboratory, and the restoration of a three-person crew. The Expedition 13 mission concluded on September 28, 2006 with a safe landing in the steppes of Kazakhstan.
