Recently, the United Arab Emirates launched a probe titled the “Hope” on a mission to Mars. This is the first time an Arab nation has launched a mission beyond earth’s orbit. The project involved a remarkable collaboration between scientists and officials from the UAE and the USA. Hope mission team members will share a first hand look at the collaboration, the challenges associated with it, and how they achieved this historic milestone.
