This would be the first time in history that Saudi astronauts would be traveling into space via a private spacecraft. They will be accompanied by retired NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson and race car driver and investor John Shoffner.
The astronauts will stay at the International Space Station for around a week
This space station is around the size of a football field, located 400 kilomters above the earth’s atmosphere. It has welcomed many international crew members over the past 20 years, and would be welcoming these two astronauts for a week’s stay.
