3 messages Sheikh Mohammed wants to send with Hope probe
Set to launch on Monday, the Hope probe to the Red Planet will be the Arab world's first interplanetary space mission.
The UAE's historic mission to Mars represents hope for millions of young Arabs looking for a better future, the UAE Vice-President had said back in 2015 when he revealed that the country's probe would be called Al Amal (Hope).
Set to launch in the early hours of Monday, July 20, the Hope probe to the Red Planet will be the Arab world's first interplanetary space mission
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, had said that the Hope probe would send three important messages:
1. To the world: Arab civilisation once played a great role in contributing to human knowledge, and will play that role again.
2. To Arabs: Nothing is impossible . The Arab world can compete with the greatest of nations in the race for knowledge.
3. To those who dream big: Set no limits to your ambitions, and you can reach space.
