The United Arab Emirates will visit the asteroid McNabb/UAE Space Agency
The United Arab Emirates will send a mission to the asteroid belt, between Jupiter and Mars orbits. It will stop at Venus.

This mission builds on the success of EMM (Emirates Mars Mission), which consisted of Hope, an orbiter orbiting Mars. It was launched in February. Hope will continue to observe our planet neighbor until 2023.

We embarked on the Emirates Mars Mission six years ago. It was a challenging task.
