In an unprecedented event, the launch took place aboard the International Space Station (ISS), a fitting stage that echoes a recurrent theme in the book − the UAE’s journey from modest beginnings to stellar heights. Emirati astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi marked the occasion by reading select passages from the book.
Al Neyadi commented, "I took this picture with a 400 mm lens camera of a plane flying in the skies of Iraq while we were passing over it. Commercial planes usually fly at an altitude of about 10 km above the surface of the earth, while the height of the International Space Station exceeds this number by 40 times."
