An international crew of four astronauts will launch the International Space Station (ISS) next weekend for a stay of roughly seven months. An astronaut from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is part of the Crew-6 mission and will make history by staying at the International Space Station (ISS) for an extended period of time. A different UAE astronaut spent eight days there in 2019.

Four astronauts, including United Arab Emirates astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi, NASA astronauts Stephen Bowen and Warren Hoburg, and Roscosmos cosmonaut Andrey Fedyaev, will be launched to the International Space Station (ISS). Launched from NASA's Kennedy Space Center's Launch Complex 39A in Florida, the SpaceX Crew Dragon will cruise throughout Sunday before landing at the International Space Station early on Monday. Following the Crew-5 launch in October of last year, which also included astronauts from the Japanese space agency JAXA, the Russian space agency Roscosmos, and NASA, Nicole Mann and Josh Cassada, this is SpaceX's sixth crew trip to the International Space Station.
