My name is Sarwat Nasir and I’m the space editor at The National UAE
I’ve been covering human spaceflights, interplanetary missions, space business and the private space industry since 2017.
For my stories, I’ve travelled all over the world to cover space launches and conferences, including to Kazakhstan for UAE astronaut Hazza Al Mansouri’s launch, to Florida for UAE astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi’s lift-off and to Paris, France, to report on the International Astronautical Congress – the world’s largest space conference.
I’ve held exclusive interviews with UAE and Saudi space officials, with stories ranging from the Middle East’s ambitions to send astronauts to the Moon and beyond to sending citizens on long-duration missiong to the International Space Station.
Here, you’ll find my journalist portfolio.
