Jeffrey Williams, 58, flew aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft to the International Space Station (ISS) on Friday March 18, accompanied by two cosmonauts. He will join 3 crew members to do micro-gravity experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and geophysics.
Swe are expected to return in 6 months, which will allow him to hold the record for cumulative duration in space: 534 days. Current record holder Scott Kelly returns from a 340-day space mission. He is also struggling to readjust to life on Earth and to gravity. Jeffrey Williams openly testifies to his Christian faith. According to him, his biblical knowledge and his scientific knowledge agree.
“It is believed that those who work for NASA, or something like that, must be atheists, but that is not true. There are many Christians in this organization, many Christians in other government agencies, there are Christians everywhere. The work I do and have done during my military career and with NASA has been perfectly consistent with the Scriptures, and I have lived my Christian life openly, carefree. If your starting hypothesis excludes the possibility of God, that excludes the possibility of the supernatural, and everything must be explainable just with what is natural. So you limit what an objective observation of science allows you. […] I presuppose God, and I presuppose the truth of the Scriptures. "
