The Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) shared images of Emirati astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi and his Crew-6 colleagues aboard the International Space Station.

Al Neyadi said on Twitter, “Sharing with you my first views of Earth from the Cupola Observational Module aboard the ISS. The further we journey from Earth, the more we realize just how precious it truly is. Let us cherish and preserve this incredible planet we call home.”

The space centre said on Twitter, “Astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi and his Crew-6 colleagues have started to work on their tasks aboard the ISS.

“Sultan is seen in the Japanese KIBO module which hosts experiments that focus on different fields including space medicine, biology and Earth observation.”

The four Crew-6 members are two NASA astronauts Stephen Bowen and Warren Hoburg, Russian cosmonaut, Andrey Fedyaev, and Emirati astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi.

Earlier on Wednesday, Sultan Al Neyadi shared breathtaking selfies from the ISS.

Al Neyadi said on Twitter, “From space, I salute earth. I salute our homeland and its leaders. I salute all those who carried Zayed’s Ambition in their hearts and aim high to the sky. The dream has come true and now we dream bigger.”

Al Neyadi took selfies with the planet earth visible through the giant windows of the ISS.

Social media users were stunned by the images and shared some encouraging comments.

He said, earlier, that he had a busy schedule of research during the coming days, especially since the "crew-5" who is with them on the station now, will leave after three days.

The Crew-6 will take over all the tasks.

He added, "We have a large number of scientific experiments in which the United Arab Emirates participates in partnership with international space agencies, as well as scientific experiments which have an exclusive Emirati imprint."
