Having the ISS revolving around the Earth at speeds of up to 28,000kmph, an astronaut will see in one earth-day at least 16 sunrises and 16 sunsets. This means, one day at the ISS is equivalent only to 90 minutes.
UAE’s first astronaut rocketed off at exactly 5.57 pm (UAE time) on September 25 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome’s Gagarin LaunchPad on the Soyuz MS-12 mission, S61 Expedition.
