To an earthling, the world of outer space is beyond the pale of understanding, too esoteric, too ineffable. It can stoke his curiosity no end – and frissons of thrill.

"Seeing someone like Al Mansoori go up there makes me feel that he carries a part of my dream with him. Its hard to put this feeling into words so maybe by creating this picture of him is my way of thanking him for it. I’m proud of what he has accomplished," said Alapide.
First Emirati astronaut Hazzaa Al Mansoori tweeted: "Today is a special day as it marks the first ever all-female spacewalk. Congratulations to the crew back at the International Space Station, Astronauts @Astro_Jessica and @Astro_Christina on this historic achievement!"
