UAE prepares for lift-off


After an extensive search for the right candidates, Dubai has excitingly announced the first two Emirati astronauts to go to space with the International Space Station.

The chosen two, Hazaa Ali Abdan Khalfan Al Mansouri and Sultan Saif Muftah Hamad Al Niyadi, have impeccable and intriguing backgrounds across aviation, military, electronics and communication engineering. On top of a space industry worth AED20bn, this latest announcement is certainly putting the United Arab Emirates on the map (of outer space) with the aim of “raising the bar for an entire generation.”

We can’t wait to follow the journey, to infinity and beyond.
