UAE leaders welcome UAE astronaut Hazzaa AlMansoori after landing on Earth


First Emirati astronaut Hazzaa AlMansoori makes perfect touchdown after his 8-day space sojourn.

His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, on Thursday reacted after UAE’s first astronaut Hazzaa AlMansoori landed on Earth.

“Praise be to God for Hazza AlMansoori’s safe return to Earth after visiting the International Space Station. Congratulations to the people of the UAE for this historic achievement. Zayed’s sons will fulfill our ambition to reach Mars,” he said.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, also tweeted a welcome message for Hazzaa.

Hazzaa AlMansoori, the UAE’s first astronaut to have visited space and the International Space Station, landed on Earth after an eight-day journey. He had flown to the ISS last Wednesday on board the Soyuz MS-12 mission, S61 Expedition.

AlMansoori, father of four and a former military fighter jet pilot, rocketed off at 5.57pm (UAE time) on September 25 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome’s Gagarin Launch Pad.
