When I was a child, learning about H.H. Prince Sultan bin Salman Al Saud's inspiring journey into space made me believe that truly sky is the limit. On the anniversary of his flight into space, we are reminded that no dream is small and if pursued with passion and persistence we can achieve it. Hazzaa AlMansoori, Emirati Astronaut
35 years since H.H. Prince Sultan bin Salman Al Saud made us believe that it is possible to dream, chase and make history. Thank you for making us believe in the power of dreams! You will always remain our role model and inspiration. Sultan AlNeyadi, Emirati Astronaut
