    The United Arab Emirates, or UAE has announced their plans to send an unmanned rocket to Mars in November of the year 2021 to celebrate the country’s 50th anniversary.

    Home to the world’s tallest building in the city of Dubai and dozens of man made islands, the UAE wants to prove that although there is political unrest in much of the Middle East region, they are still capable of technological and scientific achievements.

    Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, the UAE vice-president and ruler of Dubai is quoted as saying: “We chose the epic challenge of reaching Mars because epic challenges inspire us and motivate us. The moment we stop taking on such challenges is the moment we stop moving forward.”

    There are several Muslim majority countries that have space programs including Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Turkey, Pakistan and Iran.


    Less than half of the attempted missions to Mars from countries all over the world have been successful.

    The UAE mission to Mars will reportedly take nine months for the space probe to travel over 37 million miles.
