Event description

Description

For most people who go into space it is a dream come true, but for the man set to be the UK’s first Muslim astronaut his priority is making the world a better place.

Hussain Manawer, 25, from Ilford, Essex, is due to blast off in 2018 after seeing off thousands of other entrants from more than 90 countries in a competition. The poet, charity fundraiser and founder of his own creative agency dedicated his victory to everyone who has suffered mental health problems. His public profile has soared since winning the competition.

Hussain has gone on to become a highley sought after motivational speaker for people suffering mental health issues. He has rubbed shoulders with political leaders and royals and given talks around the world, all squeezed in between his astronaut training.
