Hazzaa AlMansoori dons a kandura at the ISS

In a first for space fashion, AlMansoori wore a kandura as he shared, “A part of our Emirati culture with the crew aboard the ISS”. Fun fact, ahead of his hotly anticipated voyage, The Space Food Laboratory prepared traditional halal meals for him.

Heartwarming message about making it into space

“From here, everything from Liwa Dunes began in the Empty Quarter. I looked at the clouds and dreamed of becoming a pilot, looked at the stars and dreamed of becoming an astronaut. Today I look at you, my country from the other side and dream of returning to you to accept your immaculate soil after the mission is nearing completion.”
