UAE’s new astronauts to begin Nasa’s 2-year training programme in Houston – The National

The UAE’s two new astronauts are heading to Houston next week for a two-year training programme.

Mohammed Al Mulla, a former Dubai Police helicopter pilot, and Nora Al Matrooshi, a mechanical engineer, will begin their training in January at the Johnson Space Centre.

They will be trained alongside Nasa’s new class of astronaut candidates, who will become eligible for space missions once they graduate, including to the International Space Station and future missions to the Moon under the Artemis programme.
