National Geographic announced today that it's creating a four-part documentary series in partnership with the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre to share with the world the UAE's remarkable accomplishments and unbridled ambition in relation to its National Space Programme.
Over the four years of the partnership, the series will present the history and establishment of the Emirati space industry and its significance in overcoming the present and future crises faced by our planet: climate change, the loss of natural resources, food shortages and the like. The series will even delve into what life beyond our planet would look like.
Individual episodes will hone in on momentous and defining events and projects in the UAE's space legacy: the launch of the first Emirati satellite, KhalifaSat, in October 2018; the Emirates Mars Mission and Hope Probe, aiming for touchdown on the red planet by 2021; the UAE Astronaut Programme, soon to send the first Emirati astronaut to the International Space Station; and Mars 2117 Strategy, the plan to establish a fully functioning and livable city on Mars in 2117.
National Geographic hopes to spotlight the efforts and commitment of individuals who have had a hand in the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre's great endeavour.
