First Martian Now Lunar: The UAE Is All Set To Send The Rashid Rover To The Moon
Celestial journeys are now becoming a mainstream thing for the UAE’s gifted, achieving, and endeavouring minds
Under the helm of the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre, a second space mission is underway. But this time round, the journey is to the moon. The Rashid Rover will take off at 11:38 am on Sunday, 11 December 2022. Isn’t it just so exciting?
Only last year, the Amal (Hope) probe went into orbit on the red planet on 9 February 2021, after being launched into space on 19 July 2020.
Just as the Emirates Mars Mission gave the world unseen pictures and information, the Rashid Rover too will regale back new information about the sole natural satellite of the Earth.
You can watch the live coverage of the event at 10 am!
Tomorrow, the UAE will launch to the Moon on a mission to be completed by the Rashid Rover.
