In September 2019 Hazzaa AlMansoori became the first Emirati to travel to space. On board the International Space Station (ISS) he conducted scientific experiments and introduced his fellow astronauts to Emirati culture and food.

Our panel discusses the significance of the mission, the importance of space to science and international relations alike, and future developments for the UAE’s growing space programme.

Hazzaa AlMansoori spent eight days on the ISS. He was previously a UAE Air Force pilot and has flown many aircraft, including F16s.

Sultan AlNeyadi is an Emirati astronaut and was the backup candidate for the mission to the ISS. He has a PhD in Information Technology and served in the UAE Armed Forces as a communications engineer.
