A hero's welcome awaits Emirati astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi as he flies back to the UAE today, after successfully completing a six-month mission onboard the International Space Station (ISS).

In a post on their social media channel, Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) said his homecoming will be livestreamed from 5:30 pm.
