During approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes without intermission, UAE residents will be able to quiz Al Neyadi about anything from life on the ISS and learn more about the longest Arab space mission in history, which is set to last about six months.

The event will also offer a chance to know about the challenges Al Neyadi faces and the experiments he will be conducting. 

During his mission, Al Neyadi has 19 experiments and advanced studies to work on, covering topics such as cardiovascular and immune system health, back pain, sleep analysis, and radiation.

The discussion will be in Arabic, with headphones provided for English translation.

"By sharing Sultan's journey into space, we aim to inspire not only the next generation of space enthusiasts but also the wider community," Salem Humaid Al Marri, Director General of MBRSC, said.

The Crew-6 mission by NASA to the ISS lifted off on Thursday, March 2nd, at 9.34 am UAE time from Launch Complex 39A at the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida, aboard the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft Endeavour, carried by the company’s Falcon 9 rocket.
