An Emirati astronaut will fly a long-duration space station mission in 2023. Axiom Space said April 29 it will fly the astronaut on the Crew-6 mission to the ISS, scheduled for as soon as the spring of 2023, using a seat the company acquired from NASA as part of an agreement last year where Axiom bought a Soyuz seat for NASA. The UAE will be the first country that is not an ISS partner to fly an astronaut on the station for an extended mission. The country flew its first astronaut on a short-duration Soyuz flight to the ISS in 2019.
