He expressed his gratitude towards the Late Sheikh Zayed for having taught him the noble virtues of selflessness.

Al Neyadi left for the International Space Station on March 3, 2023. He along with two other Russian astronauts from NASA have undertaken a mission to conduct more than 200 experiments in International space and unravel the theories of science which would trigger modern developments. His mission will continue for six months

He regularly shares snapshots of Outer Space as well. He aims to encourage the young minds of the nation to aspire and dream.

Al Neyadi is an ardent follower of the iconic personality so far. He has been inspired by the readings that have always motivated him to alleviate the sufferings of the marginalized. In fact, Al Neyadi even shared that he is proud to serve his country.
He is an important member of the Crew-6-mission that is part of Expedition 68/69. It is important to note that Al Neyadi also led the Zayed Ambition 2 mission.
The Mohammed Bin Rashid Space centre launched its mission earlier this year in order to integrate social efforts with scientific achievements for increasing the extent, outreach, and accessibility of the services.
Al Neyadi is the 10th space-walking citizen in the world. He is the first person from the UAE to have achieved such a distinction. He has been a part of various space missions and he has successfully accomplished all of them so far.
He undertook a journey of 6.5 hours in extravehicular orbit to reach the International Space Station. He has been sharing the details of all the experiments he has conducted there. Recently, he sent a video through microgravity to the Mohammed Bin Rashid space centre.
He was separating hydrogen from oxygen so as to purify the impure water and make it fit for human consumption. In this way, he has been constantly in touch with all the people. His efforts have been duly accounted for and he has been already nominated for various awards.
Al Neyadi has always stayed down-to-earth and versatile. In a recent interview, he confirmed that his humility is his biggest asset. He draws inspiration from the Late Sheikh Zayed. He has always helped the community in the best way possible. In fact, he usually donates huge amounts to charitable organizations and institutions in the UAE to serve the poor and the needy.
He has always focused on the empowerment of the youth. He believes that the youth has the power to make a change. Therefore, he motivates young minds to accept the teachings of the Late Sheikh Zayed and pass them down the line of their descent.
This is the only way through which the message of kindness and compassion would spread throughout the country. Al Neyadi has always endorsed the attitude of giving and that is why is a true Emirati.
