After five days in space … the changes hit the body of the first Emirati astronaut to arrive at the International Station


Hazza al-Mansouri, the first Emirati astronaut who arrived at the International Space Station last week, announced that changes hit his body five days after his presence in space.

"There have been a lot of changes to my body," Mansouri said in a video call with students at the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Center in Dubai. "My head size has increased due to the fluid burst and my sense of smell has changed, but I have begun to adjust and get used to it."

"I will be happy to show your first video of the station in Arabic soon," he said. "The best thing about the station is weightlessness."

Mansouri said he had visited all the space station compartments and had prepared a video of the station.

Mansouri will spend eight days in space, with the scheduled return of the vehicle on October 3.
