Outta this World

NASA astronaut Sunita Williams will be running the Boston Marathon in space.

The Needham-native will be running the race on a treadmill on board the International Space Station (ISS) while her sister Dina Pandya runs the actual course on earth. Williams qualified for Boston at last year's Houston Marathon clocking a time of 3:29:57.

The B.A.A is sending her a bib number and runner's medal via a NASA shuttle up to the space station.
