UAE's First Astronaut Leaves ISS, Touches Down in Kazakhstan

UAE's First Astronaut Leaves ISS, Touches Down in Kazakhstan”

For his return on Thursday, Mansoori was travelling in a Soyuz spacecraft along with United States' NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Russia's Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin, who both survived a failed launch to the ISS past year. She is expected to return to Earth in February 2020, nearly a year after her launch.

After postlanding medical checks, Hague will return to Houston, and Ovchinin and Almansoori will return to Star City, Russia.

During Hague's time in space, he performed a trio of spacewalks outside the International Space Station totally almost 20 hours.

The Expedition 60 crew contributed to hundreds of experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science, including investigations into devices that mimic the structure and function of human organs, free-flying robots, and an instrument to measure Earth's distribution of carbon dioxide.

Two years later, Syrian air force pilot Muhammed Faris spent a week aboard the Soviet Union's Mir space station.

A multinational team of three astronauts on board Russia's Soyuz MS-12 spacecraft safely returned to Earth on Thursday, after completing their mission on the International Space Station (ISS). He survived a dramatic launch abort last October, before getting a second chance to fly into space.

NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin were also making the return trip to Earth after extended stays aboard the station.

The United Arab Emirates' first astronaut, Hazza Al-Mansoori, is returning to Earth on Thursday after spending eight days in space.

Mansoori has been active on Twitter where he shared photos of the UAE and Mecca - Islam's holiest site - from the space station.
