In pictures.. Hazzaa AlMansoori conducts Osteology aboard ISS

Dubai, UAE, 30 September 2019:   Hazzaa AlMansoori, the first Emirati astronaut, shared a series of photos with the team at the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC). The photos showed AlMansoori conducting an experiment on bone status indexes, body composition, and endocrine regulation in astronauts. This experiment on “Osteology” is conducted in cooperation with the Russian Space Agency Roscosmos.

The pictures show AlMansoori and the Russian cosmonaut Oleg Skripochka while using the station’s equipment to conduct the experiment. AlMansoori also appears in a different picture as he calculates his body mass index to study the impact of microgravity on bone density.

AlMansoori regularly communicates with the Emirati engineers at MBRSC’s ground station in Dubai and Russia’s Mission Control Center, to brief them on his scientific experiments and daily routine, and send pictures and videos, while on board the ISS.

AlMansoori will conduct 16 scientific experiments in cooperation with international space agencies, including Roscosmos, the European Space Agency (ESA), NASA, and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). Six of these experiments will be conducted in microgravity, and the results of the two environments will later be compared. The experiments include studying the reaction of vital indicators of the human body aboard the ISS, as well as other physical, biological and chemical experiments. AlMansoori be the first astronaut from the Arab region to participate in such research.
