For the first time, an Arab woman will fly into space

Saudi Arabian astronaut Ryan Barnaoui will become the first Arab woman in space. She will go to the International Space Station on May 21 with her compatriot Ali Al Karni, reports Arabian Business.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will be one of the few countries that simultaneously launched two astronauts to the ISS. This historic flight is part of the space exploration program that was launched last year on September 22.
As part of the mission, the astronauts will conduct 14 groundbreaking scientific experiments in microgravity conditions, as well as three educational experiments with 12,000 Saudi students live.
