UAE’s space programs beacons of hope for Arabs: Farouk El-Baz


UAE’s space programs, including the planned launch of the first Arab probe to Mars by 2021, known as Emirates Mars Mission, are beacons of hope for Arabs to blaze a trail and achieve distinction in this domain, according to Dr Farouk El-Baz, Director of the Centre for Remote Sensing at Boston University, and Member of the UAE Space Agency Advisory Committee.
Speaking to the Emirates News Agency (WAM), on the sidelines of the third regular meeting of the Advisory Committee of the UAE Space Agency, El-Baz said that humanity will benefit from the UAE’s space programmes which will in no uncertain way “promote the country’s regional and international stature.”
He added that the UAE has implemented an integrated and ambitious project to reach and explore the Red Planet, and is sparing no effort to develop the space sector.
