Major Hazzaa Al Mansoori returns from the International Space Station today and the entire country is waiting with much-anticipation to see him come back safely. As with his departure and much of the eight days since, there will be live coverage streamed online.

During his eight-day mission aboard the ISS, the Emirati astronaut has been conducting an array of scientific experiments, including those produced by 16 schools across the UAE. He also presented a tour of the space station in Arabic, before returning to Earth today, Thursday October 3.
