The Emirates Mars Mission is the first Arab mission to the Red Planet. The UAE’s Mars Hope Probe carries the aspirations of millions of people across 56 Arab and Islamic countries for the mission’s role in establishing an Arab presence on the global space map.
For the first time in history, the countdown to the launch will be in Arabic as it sets off from Tanegashima Space Center in Japan. The Hope Probe carries a message for future generations that the impossible is possible. With determination and willpower, people can turn challenges into opportunities.
The space mission sends a key message of the capability of the UAE, and the wider Arab world, to achieve giant scientific leaps and develop interplanetary explorations that contribute to mankind.
