Emirati Astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi is scheduled to return from the International Space Station (ISS) on September 4, following his completion of the longest Arab space mission in history.

Al Neyadi and the Space X Crew were originally scheduled to undock from the ISS on September 2 but were delayed due to unfavourable weather conditions in the Gulf of Mexico.

It was confirmed on Sunday that the SpaceX Dragon craft Endeavour had successfully undocked at 3:05 pm GST and the journey would take approximately 17 hours. Al Neyadi is expected to splash down at 8:17 AM (GST).
