The UAE astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi on Monday shared a video of the two Holy Mosques in Saudi Arabia from the International Space Station (ISS) and extended his greetings to the ‘sons of Salman.’
Al Neyadi tweeted, “from the international space station, a gift for Salman's children on these blessed nights.”
“Dedication to the country of the Two Holy Mosques, the landing site of revelation and the land of the message, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” he tweeted further.
Earlier, Sultan Al Neyadi shared a video explaining how an astronaut sends a sample on the earth.
“Worked with my fellow crew to send research samples back to Earth onboard SpaceX's 27th Dragon cargo mission, which I am happy to hear reached Earth safely,” Neyadi tweeted.
“Here, you can see me accessing the Minus Eighty-Degree Laboratory Freezer (MELFI), that can reach temperatures as low as -100°C, to preserve some samples. Working in space is fun even when everything wants to float away.”
Al Neyadi took the time to answer students’ questions, speaking on a variety of topics, ranging from what inspired him to pursue a career as an astronaut and how he prepared for his current mission.
