This is the first Arab youth to travel in space. And he is carrying a manuscript of the Holy Quran. Jessica Meyer and Russian commander Oleg Skripochkar are the companions of the Muslim navy named Haja al-Mansuri. The US space agency (NASA) says it will begin sailing on September 27 via the spacecraft 'Suez MS1'. The spacecraft is planned to begin at the Baikonur Cosmodrome space base in Kazakhstan. Meanwhile, Assistant Director-General of the United Arab Emirates' Mohammed bin Rashid Space Center, Salem Al-Marie, said this is the first space program. Through this mission, national skills are developed. It will help us to have a better life on earth. He said that for nearly 20 years the International Space Station (ISS) has received more than 20 innovators from 6 countries around the world. We hope the UAE will be the 5th country. The International Space Station has said that Haja al-Mansuri will be able to carry 5kg of goods in space travel. He is carrying a manuscript of the Holy Qur'an, family photographs, the flag of the United Arab Emirates woven in pure silk, a book called 'Kisati' (my story), a picture of Shaykh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and three seeds of 'Al Ghaf' tree.
