The UAE is the most recent nation to sign an agreement with NASA to collaborate on human spaceflight. NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine tweeted about the joint letter of intent today, which was likewise marked by Dr. Mohammed Al Ahbabi, the chief general of the UAE Space Agency. While there are no insights about what the understanding involves, apparently UAE space travelers will be qualified for spots on NASA’s run missions.
The UAE is right now during the time spent choosing its first group of space travelers. It has limited the field down to nine hopefuls who are in preparing.
From this pool, four space travelers will be authoritatively chosen. The primary UAE space explorer is planned to dispatch to the International Space Station in April 2019. The UAE Space Agency as of now has an arrangement with Roscosmos, Russia’s space organization, for that flight.
NASA and the UAE signed an outer space and aeronautics research agreement into the agreement in June of 2016. Be that as it may, this new joint letter stresses human spaceflight alongside other space investigation objectives.
Considering that NASA has far to go before it recovers the capacity to fly its own space travelers, however, on account of postponements from both SpaceX and Boeing, this is all hypothetical for the present moment.
