The UAE space agency has been established!
This is soooo exciting!
A UAE Space Agency has officially been established. President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan today has issued a decree for the federal body to serve all aspects of the country’s space sector.
We have also found out today that the space agency will be headquartered in Abu Dhabi and also have a branch in Dubai.
The UAE has a goal of sending an unmanned mission to Mars by 2021.
The unmanned probe will travel more than 60 million kilometres in nine months and will be launched to coincide with the UAE’s 50th anniversary.
