[i]Prince Sultan of Saudi Arabia — the first Arab astronaut to go into space — dropped by the Udvar-Hazy Center Tuesday to see Discovery, the shuttle he flew on in 1985 as a payload specialist. "I arrived a little late to D.C. last night," he joked, "because I was on a plane that only goes 500 miles an hour, as opposed to the shuttle I flew that went 1,800 miles an hour." (Astronaut humor!) The Saudi royal was in town for the Smithsonian's Sackler exhibition "Roads of Arabia" coming this fall as part of the museum's 25th anniversary.[/i]
