Talk "GCC in Space: Past, Present and Future"

12th October

Join The Scientific Center for a “TED” style talk, where we will host guest speakers from Orbital Space and the UAE Space Agency who will be discussing the history, present and future of space related science activities in the GCC. Orbital Space is the first private company in the Middle East to provide access to space just outside planet Earth. They aim to provide the tools and know-how to make space accessible for all, and will be going in-depth into their current CubeSat program. The United Arab Emirates’ interest in astronomy and space sciences dates back to the 1970’s, and in 2014 the UAE Space Agency was established, with the aim of developing the country’s space sector. The agency is responsible for establishing partnerships, assisting academic programs, advancing national and regional space exploration, and investing in research, development and commercial space projects. Guest speakers will be discussing the upcoming Emirates Mars Mission, set to arrive at Mars in 2021 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the founding of the UAE.
