    Abu Dhabi: The UAE has entered the space race with a project to send an unmanned probe to Mars by 2021 in the Arab world’s first mission to another planet. A new UAE Space Agency will be created to coordinate the UAE’s growing space technology sector and to supervise the mission.

    The UAE is one of only nine countries with space programmes to explore the Red Planet. The Mars probe’s nine-month and more than 92 million kilometre journey will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the UAE’s formation.

    “The UAE Mars probe represents the Islamic world’s entry into the era of space exploration. We will prove that we are capable of delivering new scientific contributions to humanity,” President His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan said.

    Useless comment. Especially as it is coming form an Azeri, LOL.

    The space industry as we know it is already well-devoloped and was invented in the West. All countries that have followed since have not added anything new on that front on a large scale. They have just built on already existing knowledge. For UAE to join that club with it's population is a great thing and obviously locals will be involved.

    Quit trolling this section. We don't tend to have many of your likes otherwise.

    a fox tried to reach some grapes hanging high on the vine but was unable to, although he leaped with all his strength. As he went away, the fox remarked 'Oh, you aren't even ripe yet! I don't need any sour grapes.' People who speak disparagingly of things that they cannot attain would do well to apply this story to themselves.

    Do UAE have any launch platforms or experience in developing and launching it's own satellites?

    Good luck though. :)

    Great initiative, I think they should team up with NASA and try to develop a launch platform of their own, it would further improve UAE self reliance and they wouldn't have to depend on others to launch their sats.
