2 posts in this topic

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates, May 25 (UPI) -- Nearly a year after the United Arab Emirates announced the formation of its own space agency, officials in the small Arab nation have released a strategic framework that will dictate the agency's development.

The newly founded agency's most recognized goal remains the same -- send the "first Arab unmanned probe" to Mars by 2021. But the framework expounds upon the agency's mission, vision and priorities, and even offers a few specifics on new programs and initiatives.

"The establishment of a fully-fledged space sector in the UAE, with all necessary human resources, infrastructure and scientific research, is a primary national objective," Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the country's vice president and prime minister, said at a recent agency launch celebration -- as reported by the Indo-Asian News Service.

Keep them away from Mars. They'll probably start drilling for oil within one month
of landing there!
