Mariam Al Shamsi, Director of the Space Science division in MBRSC, added,”In MBRSC, we feel that knowledge is cumulative and people continuously engage with the global space and science community to share ideas and insights that benefit the worldwide pursuit of space study.
The EMM team, members in the local and global science community, and pupils from EMM science outreach programs will get together during the 5th Annual EMM Science Workshop to discuss a vast array of topics like the Martian surface, climate, and dust storms, thermosphere, and the lack of air on the red world. The EMM Science Team will also discuss the latest developments in the Emirates Mars Mission — Hope Probe, which is scheduled for launching at July 2020.” Since the workshop includes a restricted number of participants, those interested must register on the MBRSC website before 5 March 2020. The supported list of participants will be released on 9 March 2020.
Featuring talks and participating workshops by scientists and leading specialists from the UAE and around the world, the event will concentrate on our existing comprehension of the Martian atmosphere and its evolution. The 5th Annual EMM Science Workshop functions as an perfect platform for knowledge transfer for scientists, researchers, professors, and university students from the fields of science and engineering.
Omran Sharaf, Project Director, Emirates Mars Mission (Hope Probe), stated,”The UAE is quickly building its position as a global contributor in space exploration and research. Under the guidance of the UAE’s intelligent direction, we are continuously exploring new frontiers and strengthening our capacities.
The Emirates Mars Mission, the UAE’s first interplanetary mission, is a substantial step for mankind’s pursuit of the red planet. The information and insights collected by the Hope Probe about the mysteries of the Martian air will enrich our understanding and help us prepare for future exploration missions. As we prepare to launch the Hope Probe in July 2020, the Annual EMM Science Workshop is the best platform to bring the EMM team with students and scientists to talk about subjects associated with Mars and to prepare the community for the anticipated information in your Emirates Mars Mission — Hope Probe.”
