Saudi Arabia's first female astronaut arrives at the space station

Rayana Barnawi, the first female Arab astronaut in space, has arrived at the International Space Station (ISS). The mission took off on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from the Space Center in Florida, USA, on Sunday.

He is one of two Saudi nationals to take part in the second private mission of the US private space agency Axiom Space.

According to media reports, the 34-year-old biomedical scientist plans to conduct stem cell and breast cancer research during a 10-day stay in orbit of the International Space Station (ISS).

In a video recorded in space before reaching the ISS, the Saudi female astronaut said,“The future of all people in the world is very bright. I maintain that you should think ambitiously, put stock in yourself and trust in humankind.

These four people will stay on the International Space Station for about 10 days.

However, this is not Saudi Arabia's first space mission. In 1985, a Saudi citizen named Sultan bin Salman bin Abdulaziz went into space for the first time. He was also an air force pilot. He participated in an American space mission.
