Abu Dhabi - Details of the UAE Space Programme and the Emirates’ mission to Mars were presented to an international audience gathered at the Paris Air Show last week.

Taking part for the first time in the world’s largest and longest running aerospace trade show, the UAE Space Agency delegation, led by Dr Mohammed Al Ahbabi, Director-General of the agency, was there to promote the “young” Emirati space programme.

“The Paris Air Show offers a unique opportunity to not only share the accomplishments of the UAE Space Agency before an international audience, but also to meet with industry colleagues from around the world to discuss further avenues of cooperation between the UAE and international space agencies,” said Al Ahbabi.
