Hazzaa Almansoori has made history as the first Emirati and Arab astronaut on the International Space Station. It's been three days since he was launched into space onboard the Suyoz spacecraft, and it is a delight to see and read about his experience in the outer space. On Friday, he attended a video call with the leadership in the UAE and was expected to take questions from the people. It is a dramatic development, to say the least. The UAE has achieved so much in a short span of time. The Emirates is known for the urban infrastructure, and regionally has made a mark in health, tourism, trade, education sectors. Its unwavering commitment to better life, progress, innovation will continue to drive the growth. The latest achievement in space is the beginning of a journey that will take the country to far greater heights. Kudos to the UAE.
