September 25, 2019 is a remarkable milestone in the leap of UAE to be the world’s No 1 Country. UAE made history with the launch of first Emirati Astronaut Hazza Al Mansouri to space, along with 2 other astronauts in the spacecraft named Soyuz MS-15, which blasted off to the International Space Station from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Hazzaa brings UAE's vision to embrace space, a reality.
Hazza is sending a wave of positive energy and inspiration across the young minds of the nation, who aspire to dream big! On a live video conversation from the International Space Station, he addressed a group of students who enthusiastically gathered at the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Station. He showed them what it means to live at zero gravity and cheerfully answered the questions raised by his people. The young students wore space-suits with ‘Future Astronauts’ tags tailored on it.
Sheikh Mohammed congratulated Hazzaa during the live-session : “We are amongst the stars and you are the first and we always remember the first”. Hazzaa shared that watching Earth and its sunrises and sunsets from the space is an incredible feeling, but seeing UAE and its beautiful landscape was the best experience he had ever had. The twitter campaign #askhazzaa will help people to directly pop their questions to Hazzaa in a bid to educate and to spread awareness.
Brainobrain and its young geniuses congratulate Hazzaa and UAE on this outstanding achievement, while thanking them immensely for continuing to inspire us!!
