    This program of the present King Abdullah only existed since 2005. It has absolutely nothing to even what it was before.

    King Abdullah is not amused. When doing something it is perfectly or not. Like this :

    My dear brother, please safe your time and let them spread ignorance. They are foreigners and have little knowledge so do not blame them. It's like if we started to write all kind of claims (OUTDATED moreover) about the internal dynamics of Pakistan etc. or Papua New Guinea.
    Let them think whatever they want to. We should honestly not care and just move forward like always. We have everything to succeed. An ancient past of grandeur, enormous resources, a talented and very young population, ambition and hopefully increasing ambition and hard work.

    Please safe your precious time.;)

    Veteran space explorer praises UAE’s space ambitions
    Canadian astronaut Colonel Chris Hadfield says country will benefit from Mars project

    “You can see Dubai’s manmade Islands — The Palm and The World — very clearly from space, but you cannot see the Wall of China — it’s a myth,” Colonel Chris Hadfield, the first and only Canadian to ever command a spaceship, told Gulf News during his visit to Dubai yesterday.

    Colonel Hadfield, who has 21 years of experience as an astronaut and has completed three space flights, was invited to the UAE by General Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to speak at his Ramadan Majlis.

    During his interview with Gulf News, the astronaut shared his expertise and insights on what are the possible outcomes of the UAE’s decision to send a manmade probe to Mars by 2021 and establish the UAE Space Agency.

    The man, who is currently on the five dollar Canadian bill, said the establishment of the UAE space agency can lead to a multi-billion dollar aerospace industry.

    Giving Canada’s early space experience as an example, he said: “Our first satellite was humble; it was just a small satellite, but the technologies we invented for it led to space robotics, which led to the huge arm [Canadarm] that is on the space station right now, which then lead to the robotics that we use in medical procedures. Now there is a NeuroArm used for brain surgery in Canada.”

    Col Hadfield said he never thought that when the space agency was formed that there will be significant inventions and results that can lead to a multi-billion dollar industry in Canada, adding that the UAE can follow his country’s model to some degree.

    Establishing the UAE space agency will also open doors to future missions, Col Hadfield said.

    “We will be setting up permanent bases on the moon. It is probably 25 years away, but when the time comes, only countries that have developed and trained their people and invented the technology can take part. Think of the first person from the UAE who is going to fly in space and walk on the moon.”

    Col Hadfield said the UAE has given itself a complex and monumental task of successfully sending a robot to mars on a seven-year scale.

    “It is a short time, but it is possible. We normally do things on trial and error but they won’t have time for error. But the beautiful part of that is the possibility of cooperating internationally and of course in the UAE there has been lots of evidence of international cooperation.”

    The astronaut said international collaboration is important for this challenge, as the international experts can help avoid going through the errors that they have already experienced.

    Although international collaboration is important, he said fostering indigenous capabilities allows for a bigger platform for the future, so the UAE must slowly but incrementally challenge the universities here and the manufacturing base to build up and increase capabilities.

    “It is important so that five years from now, when the UAE space agency says it would like to put a rover on the moon or drill to see if there is water or whatever, they would have started to build the expertise so they don’t have to rely on other countries.”

    Col Hadfield commended the UAE leaderships for thinking of the long term and the future.

    “Think of the impact, think of the inspiration and the way that people will choose to make decisions with their lives, with that type of programme. The UAE is in front of the pack, so any kid growing up anywhere around this area who is interested in being an astronaut or working in space, they are going to look here because of the programme.”

    The colonel advised the UAE to look into building the capabilities within the UAE by making the universities and industries respond to the challenge as well as bringing and making the the expertise. He also said increasing the technical and creative capability of the research development that exists already and continue on building on it is important.

    Yap, hire some Russians and they will get you there. :)

    Ya, they will be able to sling a rocket into the space and send a object to Mars orbit. It can be achieved with available technology. But landing and bringing back specimen to earth is hell of a job and I dont think other than USA or Russia, anybody else should even dream of right now let alone UAE.

    It makes me sad when I see this idiot GCC waste so much wealth only to show them off. At the end of the day they are the one going to beg.

    I agree. There were many developing countries that were mocked at (Especially those in Asia) in the past for trying to carry out ambitious projects. Those developing countries never cared about how the world looked at them and instead worked harder. The UAE already has aerospace engineers, mechanical engineers, microsystem engineers, and many others and I therefore believe that we will be able to carry out this project. Also, every country, even the US, has at some point relied on foreign technology and foreigners.

    No, brother you cannot even fix a damaged elevator. All that is false. Those students are false-flaggers.

    If you know what I mean.;)

    In all seriousness then UAE still has room for improvement (all Muslim and Arab countries have that) but one can only have respect for all the huge projects that UAE have initiated and FINISHED aside from those that are planned or the focus on education and ambitious projects such as this one.

    The fact that such projects are initiated should serve as something to imitate in all Muslim and developing countries.

    The fact that your population (native) is very little (1.5 million) sets certain limits and this makes it even more great that you pursue such ambitious projects and other similar projects.

    Welcome to the forum.;)

    Thanks. The problem is that foreign media generally talks about UAE projects in realestate, but barely mention anything when it comes to science and technology. This is why when we announce a big scientific project, people assume that we have no industries or academic institutions that will help us execute the project. Instead, they assume that we just started entering the aerospace industry by announcing a space program.

    :coffee:

    No ! This is what they think you (we) are dirty oil-rich Bedouins, lazy and unable. They love only your (our) money.

    They (majority) see you all (GCC) like that, those of the West. :mamba:

    Yes exactly ! :smart:

    Perfect example : Farouk El-Baz

    And there are many, many, many others. ;)

    Farouk El-Baz with the Emir of Qatar Sh. Khalifa bin Hamad Al Thani and Apollo-Soyuz astronauts Tom Stafford and Deke Slayton during Gulf lecture tour (1973).

    @Bubblegum Crisis your picture above reminded me of this picture

    Shaikh Zayed congratulated the astronauts on their important discoveries and confirmed his readiness to help for supporting an Arab Satellite to study the desert. This meeting was held on 12 February 1976. The three astronauts are Thomas Stanford, Vance Brand and Donald Slayton.

    هنأ الشيخ زايد رواد الفضاء على اكتشفاتهم الهامة، وأكد استعداده للمساعدة بدعم قمر صناعي عربي لدراسة الصحراء. حصل الاجتماع في ١٢ شباط ١٩٧٦. الرواد الثلاثة هو توماس ستافورد، فانس براند، ودونالد سايتون. ويبدو إلى أقصى اليمين في الصورة المترجم الخاص للشيخ زايد السيد زكي نسيبة.

    Later his nation was to send satellites to space and now 38 years later in 2014 the nation is planning a mars mission.
