Take a Pic With Sultan Al Neyadi's Iconic Spacewalk Suit in Dubai

Visitors at the Dubai Airshow can now take a selfie with the replica of Emirati astronaut Dr. Sultan Al Neyadi's iconic spacewalk suit at the Space Pavilion. 

The spacesuit is an Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU) suit, which weighs around 128kg and can have up to 16 layers. 

The space suit incorporates a cool garment embedded with water tubes and a communication system, which connects spacewalkers, the International Space Station (ISS), and the mission control teams on Earth.

Alongside the EMU spacesuit, the visitors can also take a look at the SpaceX pressure suit tailored for astronauts to don during the launch to space and the re-entry to Earth. 

At the pavilion, visitors also get to see and take pictures of the UAE's mini Rashid Rover, which crashlanded on the Moon's surface in April 2023. 

The Dubai Airshow runs until Nov. 17 at the Dubai World Central, so don't miss out on the coolest event of the year!
