The team briefed His Highness on the successful transfer of the Hope Probe from the UAE to its launch site in Japan, despite the current challenges, thanks to the support of our leadership and the perseverance of the team.”

 

He added, “The teams at the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre and the UAE Space Agency have always received full support from our leaders, and they have been the driving force behind the UAE’s achievements in space exploration. Their unflinching support is a source of strength and inspiration for the team to constantly take on new challenges.
