The announce was made by HH Sheikh Mohammed through his twitter account:
Noura was one of the four team members that traveled back in 2020 on a eight days mission in the International Space Station. Explore the space was her childhood dream.
She is an engineer based in Abu Dhabi and it was selected among 4305 candidates, 33% of them women, picked after following a long list of tests that includes medical exams and personality to explore her capability of team work.
If Noura is selected for a mission in the future, she would become the first Arab woman in space.
Women are capable to achieve anything, and here is another fantastic example of it.
