Marking the imminent launch of the UAE's Hope Mars Mission in the early hours of Monday in a journey to explore Mars, the National Olympic Committee (NOC) celebrated the event in a fitting style.
Through its social media platforms, the NOC republished images and video clips of NASA's Astrolympic Project; which presents the achievements of Olympic athletes from a universal perspective.
The innovative project of NASA, which was unveiled at the time of the Rio Olympic Games 2016, compares the achievements of talented Olympic athletes with iconic features of the universe. It established a synergy between the accurate universal system and the life of Olympic athletes; which is characterised by speed, accuracy and time.
Developed by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory communications group, Astrolympics project discusses physical links between sport and space highlighted by topics such as speed, distance, time, mass, rotation and pressure. It provides a brief explanation of physical concepts and makes a comparison between common daily experiences and Olympic events, and space explorations.
Some studies presented by the project made an imaginary comparison between the speed of the fastest runner in the world,the speed limit on a highway, and the speed of the debris of an exploding star. It is particularly relevant as the Olympic Games are witnessing human records close to miraculous achievements, which made NASA officials believe that the Olympic Games constitute an opportunity to transcend the limits of human capabilities.

The NOC was keen to provide distinctive historical glimpses of the Olympic athletes from a global perspective.
