The Emirati probe is expected to enter orbit on February 9.

As the Emirates’ first mission to Mars enters the Red Planet’s orbit, one of the largest 360-degree projection surfaces in the world will be lit by more than 250 laser projectors.

Reem bint Ibrahim Al Hashemy, Minister of State for International Cooperation and Director-General of Expo 2020 Dubai, said, "The Emirates Mars Mission is a true testament of our nation’s ambitious and tenacious spirit and a moment of significant pride not only for the UAE, but for our entire region as the first interplanetary mission from the Arab World.

"Just as this historic moment serves as a beacon of hope and inspiration, so will Expo 2020 Dubai bring people, communities and nations together to celebrate human innovation, imagination and ingenuity, when the first World Expo to be hosted in the MEASA region welcomes the world in the UAE’s Golden Jubilee year."

Running from October 1, 2021, to March 31, 2022, the Expo will take place on a site that offers a vision of the city of the future.
