Publication of the Emirati astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi From the International Space Station, a picture he took of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.
Al-Neyadi commented on the photo: Baghdad at night from space.. Baghdad, the Tigris and the Euphrates.. Baghdad, civilization and history.. the home of the House of Wisdom that brought together scholars and spread knowledge to the world.. had it not been for Baghdad, humanity would not have reached the progress and prosperity that we are experiencing today.
Al-Neyadi, who is on the longest mission of the Arab pioneers in the international station, had monitored a number of Arab and international cities, the last of which was before the days of the UAE capital «Abu Dhabi» and preceded by the emirate of Dubai, as well as Rabat, Cairo, Mecca, the English Channel and many others.
The Emirati astronaut recently conducted a series of research on experimental devices that support advanced space biology research, accompanied by his colleague Frank Rubio from NASA, in the Kibo Laboratory unit of the International Station.
During this period, Al Neyadi will start conducting scientific experiments for Emirati universities, which were chosen by the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Center to be conducted by Al Neyadi aboard the International Space Station, through two research projects from the Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences.
The first project will focus on evaluating the impact of the microgravity environment in space on the interaction between the heart and body position, while the second project will study oral and dental cells on Earth in a simulated microgravity environment.
