Abdullah Al Hammadi

Abdalla Al Hammadi is the primary analog astronaut for the UAE Analog Mission#1. It is part of the Scientific International Research In Unique Terrestrial Station (SIRIUS) 20/21, an analog mission conducted at the NEK ground-based analog facility in Moscow.

After spending 17 years in the UAE Armed Forces, Al Hammadi’s participation in the SIRIUS mission will play a key role in the nation’s hope for future space explorations, especially in the Mars 2117 Programme to measure the psychological and physiological impact on humans living in extreme environments.
