Weather of Arabia - The Emirati astronaut, Sultan Al Neyadi, will be the first Arab to walk in space, according to what he announced himself, in a tweet on Twitter, on April 28th.

Al Neyadi, who is currently on the International Space Station, wrote on his page, "Choosing you as the first Arab astronaut to walk in space alongside NASA astronaut Stephen Bowen is an honor and a great responsibility."

It is noteworthy that the astronauts who are selected to carry out the spacewalk mission are subject to a rigorous selection process based on their skills, experience, and ability to adapt to the difficult space environment, as well as the need to demonstrate exceptional competence in various fields, such as engineering, robotics, and life support systems. In addition to physical fitness, mental flexibility.

Spacewalks, also known as extravehicular activity (EVA), are essential to maintaining and developing the capabilities of the International Space Station and allow astronauts to perform various tasks such as maintaining and repairing the International Space Station's core systems, installing new technology hardware, and assembling and rebuilding modules. The station, and spacewalks indicate the importance of international cooperation aboard the International Space Station, where astronauts from different countries cooperate and exchange knowledge and various resources.

The Arab astronaut attached a picture of his tweet while he was next to another astronaut, and another picture of him sitting next to two of his suits that he will use to get out of the spacecraft in his first steps in space.

Al-Neyadi, 41, is the first Arab to spend six months in space after his launch on February 26 to the International Space Station via the “Falcon 9” rocket manufactured by the “SpaceX” company, and the second Emirati to participate in a trip to space, after Hazza Al-Mansouri, who spent eight Days on the International Space Station in September 2019.
