The UAE government has set seven “historic” goals in the field of space, which it seeks to achieve through the “Exploration of Venus and the Asteroid Belt within the Solar System” project, launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, And His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, finally, the most important of which is the construction of an Emirati spacecraft that will travel 3.6 billion kilometers in space, and the implementation of the first Arab landing and the fourth globally on an asteroid 560 million kilometers from Earth In addition to attracting promising national talents in the space sector, and benefiting from the experiences of Emirati national cadres working in the Emirates Mars Exploration Project, "Probe of Hope", to lead this ambitious space project.

According to the official website of the Emirates Space Agency, the project to explore the planet Venus, known as "Venus", is the sixth major project in the space sector, which is implemented or followed up and supervised by the agency, including the Hope Probe, the MuznSat satellite, in addition to the satellite. Arab Moon 813».

In detail, the unprecedented space project aims to explore Venus and the asteroid belt within the solar system, which was announced by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Commander The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces launched it, among the 50 projects of the UAE government, to achieve seven historical goals that confirm the leadership of the UAE in the field of space exploration and place it among the top five in the world in this field.

Venus is the second planet in the solar system in terms of the distance between it and the sun, which is about 108 million kilometers away from it. Earth, due to the reflection of a large amount of sunlight due to the large density of its atmosphere, as it was called in the past as “Venus” in relation to the goddess of beauty.

According to the official electronic platform of the UAE government, the first goal of this giant project is to build an “Emirati” spacecraft, which will travel a journey of 3.6 billion kilometers, to reach Venus and seven asteroids within the solar system, while the second goal is the contribution of the Emirati spacecraft. The development of distinguished Emirati and Arab engineering, technological and research competencies over the years preceding and following the historical moment of its launch in 2028.

The space mission also aims to record and implement a historic landing on the last asteroid, as part of its five-year journey, to be the first Arab landing, and the fourth globally, on an asteroid 560 million kilometers from Earth. The fourth goal of this historic mission includes the UAE’s scientific contribution In observing and exploring the secrets of the formation of the solar system, the mission also aims to contribute to the development of advanced technologies and technological innovations that mankind has not known before, in various sectors, disciplines and space sciences.

The mission also aims to attract promising national cadres and talents in the space sector and national academic and research institutions that have made qualitative achievements in this sector, in addition to benefiting from the experiences gained by Emirati national cadres working in the Emirates Mars Exploration Project “Hope Probe”, which qualifies them to lead such This ambitious space project, based on what it has accumulated of scientific knowledge and experience over the past years.

This unprecedented Arab and regional project also enhances the UAE’s position as an international knowledge reference in space sciences, and makes it an open laboratory for its advanced programs, projects and technologies, and a global center for specialized data and information, providing the outcome of its space missions and knowledge product in this vital space sector for the future of humanity, and placing it in Serving the global scientific community.

According to the Emirates Space Agency, the project to explore the planet Venus and the asteroid belt within the solar system has become the sixth major space projects for the agency, which includes the “Probe of Hope” to explore the planet Mars, which was launched in cooperation with the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Center, placing the UAE as one of the nine Only countries aspire to explore this planet, as well as launching the “MuznSat” satellite to study the Earth’s atmosphere, and collect and analyze data related to levels of greenhouse gas emissions, specifically methane and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere of the UAE, in cooperation with Khalifa University and the American University of Ras Al Khaimah.

The agency is also implementing the "Arabian Moon 813" space project, which is being implemented by a group of Emirati and Arab engineers in the facilities of the National Center for Space Science and Technology at the UAE University, with funding from the Emirates Space Agency, to work on Earth observation and measurement of environmental and climatic elements in a number of Arab countries. These include vegetation cover, soil types, minerals and water and their sources, as well as measuring greenhouse gases, pollution and dust in the air.

The agency is also implementing the "Augmentation System for Global Navigation Systems" program via satellite using radio frequency signal techniques, which paves the way for the UAE to own a national constellation of satellites, especially to deal with global navigation systems via satellite.

Small UAE Satellite Challenge

The "Emirati Small Satellite Challenge" competition is the latest space project implemented by the Emirates Space Agency, in cooperation with Khalifa University, which allows participating students to submit ideas for scientific and technical payloads that will be launched on board a miniature spacecraft, which will be built by Khalifa University students in cooperation With the winning team, the payload will be installed on board at the Yahsat Laboratory at Khalifa University and launched from the International Space Station.
