Salem Humaid Al Marri says that astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi is on the longest space mission in the Arab history, spanning six months, aboard the International Space Station (ISS). This mission has promoted the stature of the UAE and all Arabs, and exceeded all expectations.
Sultan Al Neyadi’s spacewalk on Friday marked another milestone for the Emirati space programme. Sultan along with fellow International Space Station (ISS) astronaut from NASA, Stephen Bowen, carried out maintenance work of the ISS, which remains a challenge even after more than half a century of the international space programme.
