Namira Salim, the first female astronaut from Pakistan, will launch her space mission on October 5.

Namira Salim, the first female astronaut from Pakistan, is currently on a mission to space. On October 5, she will set out on this heavenly journey with Virgin Galactic Holdings’ assistance. Richard Branson, the founder and first astronaut of Virgin Galactic, assigned Namira the position of Astronaut No. 6. Namira and Pakistan have accomplished a great deal with this planned space mission, which highlights the country’s growing interest in space exploration.

Namira Salim has an impressive background in travel and adventure. In 2006, the government of Pakistan acknowledged her as the nation’s first astronaut, and in 2007, she served as an honorary tourist ambassador for Pakistan. As the first Pakistani to reach the North and South Poles in 2007 and 2008, respectively, and to skydive over Mount Everest in 2008, Namira enjoys this distinction. She received the “Tamgha-e-Imtiaz” (Medal of Excellence) in 2011.

Caretaker Minister for Information and Broadcasting Murtaza Solangi praised Namira Salim’s planned space flight as a representation of Pakistan’s growing involvement in space exploration and a noteworthy achievement for the country. Solangi sent her congratulations and well wishes on behalf of the Pakistani government and people.
