Imagine seeing a palm tree from space! NASA Astronaut Shane Kimbrough tweeted new pictures of the Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Airports from space.

“Hello Dubai! I spy the Emirates Golf Club, a 36-hole golf course that was the first golf course in the region and was built in 1988. The Dubai Airport is in the second photo and is the world’s busiest airport by international passenger traffic.”

Kimbrough also shared an image of The Dubai Airport from space, saying: “The Dubai Airport is in the second photo and is the world’s busiest airport by international passenger traffic”

Last month, UAE announced that Two Emiratis will be part of a space research programme as part of the Scientific International Research in Unique Terrestrial Station, SIRIUS 20/21, an 8-month analog mission conducted at the NEK ground-based analogue facility in Moscow, Russia.

The pair have been selected from a shortlist of ten candidates announced last year.

The mission will focus on studying the effects of isolation and confinement on human psychology, physiology and team dynamics to help prepare for long-duration space exploration.
