UAE: Emirati astronaut Hazza Al Mansoori will arrive at the UAE on Saturday following his eight-day journey to the International Space Station (ISS).
Al Mansoori and his back-up astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi will be back to the UAE accompanied with the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC Chairman) Hamad Obaid Al Mansoori and the Director General Yousuf Hamad Al Shaibani.
Al Mansoori underwent medical check-ups and tests upon his return on Earth as part of his mission to study the effect of microgravity on human body.
Al Mansoori returned to Earth last Thursday (October 3).
He remained in Russia's Star City for post-mission health checks and medical tests.
