UAE’s Rashid Rover to explore moon through 'Lake of Dreams'
Al Khaleej interviewed the project team, which confirmed that work is progressing in full swing in compliance with the pre-set schedule in the design and development of the engineering and prototype models, which began in the testing stages in the UAE and other countries.
The team revealed that the explorer, which will roam all over the surface of the moon, traveling between new sites that have not been studied before, over an extendable 14 Earth days, will capture thousands of images and data, using devices and technologies for the first time.
It will then send these images and data to the ground station of Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre, they said.
The project is a continuation of the UAE’s strategy in exploring outer space.
On Sept.29, 2020, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, launched the Emirates Lunar Mission in a precedent that supports the UAE’s efforts to advance its space industries.
