Noura bint Mohammed Al Kaabi, Minister of Culture and Youth, has emphasised that the launch of the Hope Probe to explore Mars represents a milestone in the UAE's cultural achievements, in response to its wise leadership's vision aimed at excellence and leadership in all fields.
On the occasion of the launch of the Hope Probe on Monday, Al Kaabi said: "The start of this historic mission, deemed the first of its kind to study the weather and secrets of the Red Planet, places a major responsibility on the future generations in general, and Arab generations in particular, to help cement the legacy Arab have left in science and astronomy fields. We glean this responsibility from the legacy and achievements of the Founding Father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan."
Al Kaabi added: "His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has affirmed that the Hope Probe lays the foundations for a prosperous Arab future in exploring space and is a realistic reflection of Sheikh Zayed's aspiration to reach space, as well as a new step in the journey of preparing for the next 50 years. We will celebrate achieving the objectives of the UAE's centenary and positioning our country among the best globally.
"We are proud that this project was developed by young Emirati hands, which reflects the excellent of the current age and gives our school and university students a chance to take part in making the future of the UAE," she concluded.
