Yahsat Visit at UAE
On the long journey to becoming an Astronaut, you need to approach learning with conviction and embrace new horizons of the mind, sometimes relearning old tricks. It was a privilege to visit @yahsat a couple of days ago and understand what the UAE is doing with its satellite technology and where the future of the industry lies. It complemented my visit at @masdar_institute and YahSat’s sponsored space nano-satellite launch program there. Thank you guys for the warm hospitality and highly informative visit. It was truly a pleasure.
Another happy moment at the @yahsat headquarters visit last week photographed next to a model of the @arianespace rocket which took the satellite into its geosynchronous 36,000km orbit.cc @europeanspaceagency
