Saudi government is helping the mission
Abdullah Al-Swaha, chairman of the Saudi Space Commission, said that his government fully supports this program. The head of the commission, Mohammed Al-Tamimi, expressed his gratitude for the support, which has enabled the country to make significant progress in the space sector. The mission is also historic as it will make Saudi Arabia one of the few countries to have two astronauts of the same nationality together on the International Space Station (ISS).
Prince Sultan bin Salman took the first flight
Let us tell you that Prince Sultan bin Salman, the first chairman of the Saudi Space Commission and the first Arab, Muslim and royal astronaut, flew into space in 1985 in the American STS-51-G space shuttle mission. As Saudi Arabia continues to invest in its space programs, its new program will make an even more significant contribution to the global space community in the years to come.
