Emirates Mars Mission spacecraft hits milestone


• the Mohammed bin Rashid Centre of the Space reveals the final design and the flight model of the Emirates Mission to Mars Hopes to Probe

Dubai — the last of The drawings of the Hope of the Probe, the Arab world, the first planetary mission, were unveiled Sunday at the World Government Summit in Dubai. The details of the much discussed March 2117 plan, which aims to create the first human settlement on Mars, and the united arab EMIRATES astronaut program, which will train Emirati in space exploration, have also been discussed.

The Mohammad Bin Rashid Centre of the Space (MBRSC) has also published the plans of the “KhalifaSat”, his third and the united arab EMIRATES is the first completely indigenously built satellite.

“The Arab world has a long history with space studies, and astronomy, with numerous pioneers in the field. This rich heritage continues to power our future through our many missions of space exploration, which will create a lasting legacy for future generations of Emirati, as well as providing a source of inspiration for the region. We are proud to see the UAE among the nine countries around the world for space science investments. Relatively new in the global space sector, this success is indicative of our constant efforts to push the boundaries and continue to build the united arab EMIRATES as the heart of an Arab of the future in science,” said Yousuf Hamad Al Shaibani, MBRSC Director-General.

The Hope of Mars mission aims to provide a holistic approach to the study of the Martian atmosphere on a diurnal and seasonal time scale to identify the main factors affecting the escape of hydrogen and oxygen-the building blocks of the water. It is one of only three metres from the top of the probe of 600 KW of solar panels and will soon begin on its 55million km road March. Other key features of the probe interplanetary include the state-of-the-art spectrometers and imagers that will capture the essential information about the Martian atmosphere and climate.

“The March 2117 program and the Hope of March of the Probe are projects of great importance, as they reinforce even the water, presence within the space community. The Uae Mission to Mars will give us the first truly global picture of the Martian atmosphere and reflect the country’s vision for science and technology development fields. With these projects, we have started a new journey that will last for decades to come and will accelerate the man is trying to explore other planets.” Omran Sharaf, Project manager of the Emirates Mars Mission, said.

March 2117, which aims to make the first human settlement on Mars by 2117 is a part of MSBRC mission is to educate, empower, and inspire Emirati in all disciplines of scientific research, particularly astronomy and space exploration. 2117 Mars initiative is a long-term project, which will first help to develop universities and research centres that would enable young Emirati to enter in all the disciplines of scientific research in the field. The project will also enable the UAE to play a pioneering role in the development of systems of life on other planets through research and testing of modes of life on Mars, as well as to provide the best solutions to establish the first human settlement.

to Explain the mandate of MBRSC, Mariam Al Shamsi, Head of Science at MBRSC, said, “The space sector is a strategic element in the transformation of the UAE from a resource-based economy to one based on knowledge. By fostering a generation of young, highly qualified Emirati space leaders who have the power to shape our future, we will be able to contribute actively to the growth of the UAE of the area of the economy that creates highly developed scientific and engineering work with evidence of their capacity and competence in the field of space manufacturing.”

“With our commitment to contribute positively to humanity, to the forefront, we have developed a series of advanced space programs, such as the united arab EMIRATES Astronaut Program in order to catalyze and inspire passion in a new generation of Arab scientists and engineers to advance our science and space sectors. We firmly believe that the exploration of space, not only promotes the UAE’s global position in the science industry, but also serves as a means to advance humanity’s heritage,” Salem Humaid Al Merri, Assistant Director General for Scientific and Technical Affairs in the united arab EMIRATES and the Program Manager for the united arab EMIRATES, the Astronaut Program said.
