Hamad Obaid Al Mansoori, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre, MBRSC, said, “The Hope Probe to Mars is a message of hope from our country to the rest of the world.”
“Our space mission sends an inspiring message that nothing can stand in the way of hard work and innovation and that dreams, no matter how ambitious, can come true with unflinching willpower dedicated to the benefit of humanity,” he added.
He noted that the coronavirus, COVID-19, outbreak brought nations to a standstill, posing a challenge on economic, social and health fronts. However, the UAE was able to overcome the challenge with willpower rooted in its authentic identity and values, proving to the world its capability to turn challenges into opportunities during critical times.
“The UAE demonstrated that the impossible is possible by action manifested in the 83-hour journey of preparing and moving the Hope Probe from Dubai to the launch site in Tanegashima Island in Japan. The journey presented a success story in its own right ahead of the lift-off scheduled on July 15.”
