The UAE is set to send an Emirati astronaut on a 180-day mission to the International Space Station (ISS).

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, said it’s another major milestone for the UAE Space sector.

It will be the first time an Arab astronaut will join the crew on the ISS for a six-month mission. 

The agreement means the UAE will be the 11th country in history to send a long-term mission into space.
