The United Arab Emirates will establish a space agency with the aim of sending the first Arab unmanned probe to Mars led by an Emirati team by the year 2021, UAE President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayid Al-Nahyan announced on Wednesday.
The historic announcement will allow the UAE to enter a new developmental level by being part of the field of space technology, thus positively affecting the country's economy in the coming years, according to Emirates News Agency (WAM).
The UAE aims to enter the field of space industry and benefit from space technology in creating more development and build a team of Emirati specialists in the field, noted Sheikh Khalifa.
"The UAE Mars probe represents the Islamic worldآ’s entry into the era of space exploration. We will prove that we are capable of delivering new scientific contributions to humanity", said Sheikh Khalifa.
UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum on his part said that "We chose the epic challenge of reaching Mars because epic challenges inspire us and motivate us. The moment we stop taking on such challenges is the moment we stop moving forward".
