United Arab Emirates to launch spacecraft to moon in 2024

Dubai, September 29

A prime official within the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday stated his nation plans to ship an unmanned spacecraft to the moon in 2024.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who can be the ruler of Dubai, made the announcement on Twitter.

Sheikh Mohammed’s announcement comes after the launch of a Mars probe earlier this 12 months by the UAE, an oil-rich nation on the Arabian Peninsula.

Sheikh Mohammed stated the rover could be named “Rashid,” the identical identify of his late father, Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum.

If profitable in 2024, the UAE might change into the fourth nation on the Earth to land a spacecraft on the moon, after the US, the Soviet Union and China. India has tried and did not land a spacecraft, as has Israel and Japan. AP
