Sarah Al-Amiri, Deputy Project Manager, UAE Mars Mission, said that she was feeling immense happiness, which cannot be described in words. “This is the future of the UAE,” Amiri, who is also the Minister of State for Advanced Sciences, said in an interview with Dubai TV from the Mars mission’s launch site.

Space scientists are vowing to make the plan to settle humans on Mars a success in the next 100 years.

A message has been released on his Twitter account in which he described it as a very proud achievement for the UAE.
Imran Sharaf, project manager of the UAE space mission, said that Hope Probe would conduct research on the whole of Mars from a special point of view. Thanks to this space mission, for the first time, the world’s space science community will be able to keep abreast of climate and climate changes on Mars at different times of the day during different seasons. He added that if a decision is made to send a man to Mars in the future, the UAE has a well-planned plan to play its part in this global mission.
