Going into space seems like an unimaginable dream, however a tweet from HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai has shown it is now achievable for some.

Young Emiratis are invited to apply for a coveted position who will carry the pride of  the nation and be the first ever Emirati astronaut to go into space; if you're truly dedicated you can apply now.

The 'most competitive' applicants will be accepted

However, if you don't make it, HH Sheikh Mohammed notes that every Emirati contributes to the future of the UAE whether on land or in the skies.
