With UAE’S Hope Probe success in reaching Mars planet, long awaited dream of the late Sheikh Zayed has come true, launching the beginning of a new era in the Arab history with Emirati leadership, making it becoming the fifth space – faring country after USA, Soviet Union, Europe and India, and first ever in the Arab world.
It is first space mission ever undertaken by Arab and Islamic country that will inspire millions of UAE, Arab and Muslim youth in their sustainable scientific journey to explore outer space.
While hailing this great occasion, it is worth to mention that the UAE since its inception 50 years ago, is inspired by the clear vision (dream) of the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan ALNahyan, and the relentless pursuit to reshaping the future…. as was mentioned in Zayed statement: (We as Arab nation greatly believe that we have a big role to play in this project and these researches. We are proud of the substantial progress seen in space sciences, due to the rules set hundreds of years ago by Arab scholars. We hope peace will prevail and human beings realize the risks threatening them due to tardiness). Following the same path, our wise leadership continued to take care of “future -making projects”, and in the same context our sons have achieved this great accomplishment.
“The sons of UAE have translated the dream into reality, achieving the ambitions of many Arab generations, to set footstep on the space race, that has been monopolized by a limited number of countries” as was confirmed by UAE President H.H.Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed ALNahyan (may Allah protect him).
“Our region is a land of Civilizations. Our destiny is to explor, invent, build and create civilization “, H.H.Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid ALMaktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai (may Allah protect him) stressed.
This historical accomplishment of UAE’S Hope Probe successful arrival to Mars, in conjunction with the “the Emirates Golden Jubilee), is attributed to the continuous support and care demonstrated by our wise leadership to sustainable strategic sectors, developing competitiveness capabilities of the UAE in different scientific and technological spheres, including “space” sector; to contribute in shaping bright future elements for mankind and secure the quality of life on planet earth.
On this great occasion, we must express our appreciation to the valued efforts of our young national competencies of engineers and technicians for their distinguished role in achieving such huge accomplishment.
We are so confident that with the support of our wise leadership and efforts of our youth, the UAE mission to the Moon in 2024 will find its way.
