Sep 26, 2019 23:20 IST

On Wednesday, a rocket carrying NASA astronaut Jessica Meir, Russian space agency's Oleg Skripochka and a military pilot from the UAE Hazzaa al-Mansoori left from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on a mission to the International Space Station. Hazzaa is on an 8 day mission in space under a contract between Russia's Roscosmos and UAE and is the first of the two men that UAE has selected to send to the space station. Al-Mansoori will return to Earth next week while the others will spend more than six months in space.
