Weather of Arabia - Less than 24 hours separate us from the historical moment that all Arabs are waiting for, which is the moment when the Emirati astronaut "Sultan Al Neyadi" will take the first Arab steps in space outside the International Space Station, on an external mission to install a group of solar panels.

 

In his tweet, Al Neyadi reviewed the suit that astronauts wear and provides them with full protection in external missions from the cold weather, which in the event of meeting the sun reaches 120 degrees Celsius, and 150 degrees Celsius below zero in the dark.

 

Al Neyadi indicated that the suit, which is considered a "miniature vehicle", provides them with cooling, heating, oxygen, air purification, and various means of communication that help them perform the tasks entrusted to them safely and easily.

 

 

 

 

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.
