On a 6-month expedition in space, Emirati telecom engineer and astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi shared impressive images of Morocco from the International Space Station (ISS) while highlighting the beauty of the landscape.
From the International Space Station (ISS), where he is on a six-month mission with four other participants, the Emirati astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi shows us a very beautiful painting of the Kingdom captured in space without failing to underline the beauty of this view and to recall certain milestones in the history of Morocco.
“You cannot cross Morocco without being amazed by its beauty. Home to the first and oldest university, al-Qarawiyyin, as well as stunning architecture, history and scenery. I captured here the beautiful capital of Rabat with its Bouregreg river,” wrote the 41-year-old astronaut on his Twitter account.
