Congratulations to NASA's Jessica Meir and UAE's Hazzaa Ali Almansoori!

Sept. 25, 2019: Three multinational crewmembers blasted off to the space station today aboard their Soyuz rocket from Kazakhstan. NASA astronaut Jessica Meir, Oleg Skripochka of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, and Hazzaa Ali Almansoori from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) launched safely for their mission aboard the International Space Station on the Soyuz MS-15 spacecraft at 9:57 a.m. EDT.

The crew began their six-hour trip to the orbital laboratory during which they will orbit Earth four times.

From Caribou, Maine, Jessica Meir is a graduate of Brown University, has an advanced degree from the International Space University, and earned her doctorate from Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Meir’s September launch to the station will mark her first spaceflight. She was selected as an astronaut in 2013. Jessica is the first woman from Maine to reach orbit!

United Arab Emirates’ Hazzaa Ali Almansoori, a Roscosmos spaceflight participant, will return with to Earth Oct. 3rd. This is his first spaceflight.
