The Dubai Municipality and the MBRSC were all set to launch DMSat-1 from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 10.07am.

It was to blast off to space onboard a Soyuz 2.1 rocket launcher.

The miniature environment monitoring satellite will detect the source of air pollutants and concentration of dust and its impact on public health in the UAE.

Weighing only 15kg, DMSat-1 can perform tasks done by much larger satellites.
