UAE astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi, is scheduled to deliver a virtual speech to UAE citizens during an event in flight at the International Space Station. Al Neyadi will address the audience on Tuesday, March 7 at 7:50 AM (US Eastern Standard Time), or roughly 4:50 PM in the UAE. Audiences will be able to watch a live stream of the NASA Live event.
On March 2, Crew-6 began its six-month space mission at the International Space Station (ISS). Emirati astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi is a member of the crew, making this a historic occasion for the UAE.
The UAE astronaut will be in space for six months, which coincides with the holy month of Ramadan. Al Neyadi previously stated: “It is yet to be announced or shown, but definitely we have a lot going on. On board, I’d like to share some Emirati food. I cherish dates. I’m going to eat dates, and hopefully I’ll tell everyone about this, especially during Ramadan.
