✨Dana Sulaiman Alblooshi ✨
. - “Dana of the Emirates” - Dana, the 12-year old 'whizkid',
Youngest Emirati Astronaut, First youngest Emirati Student to undergo Astronaut Training in NASA
Dana already holds a number of certificates from NASA and is the first youngest Emirati astronaut candidate involved in exciting programmes in the fields of aeronautics and space administration at NASA in the United States.
Dana underwent advanced practical trainings in space science (live and simulation training); rocket design, programming, and launch, her rocket design impressed the officials in Huntsville, as well as the space robot (in the field of design, programming and control of robotic mechanisms) at the space camp in the State of Alabama.
Later, at the Space Center Houston, Dana and her brother Adeeb were awarded a gold medal from the Space College for their excellence; especially in underwater neutral buoyancy training for astronauts and zero-gravity environment training. Dana looks forward to raising the flag of the UAE aloft in all her participations and work, and proving that the children of the UAE are the generation of future builders and are capable of innovation and excellence.
She got inspired by the success of her brother, the youngest Emirati inventor, Adeeb Al Blooshi, who is two years older than her, who made significant contributions in the field of healthcare despite of his young age. Adeeb followed the path of scientists and worked day and night and shown early signs of innovation. He focused on scientific inventions to cater to the needs of society.
For his part, young inventor Adeeb Al Blooshi promised Sheikh Saif to achieve more excellence in his future plans and to win a Nobel Prize, which is his future goal to further elevate the name of the UAE.
Together, they marched into the space training programme, and completed an honourable scientific journey filled with achievements in the USA from the UAE to the rest of the world.
