First lunar rover | As per the mission director, the Unified Bedouin Emirates will send off its most memorable lunar wanderer in November.

The exact date would be uncovered the following month, he said. In Walk, a Japanese ispace lander will put the meanderer on the moon whenever it has been sent off on a Bird of prey 9 SpaceX rocket. Al Marzooqi was refered to as saying, “We’ve finished with the testing of the meanderer and we are glad with the outcomes.

“The lander and rover have been integrated, and it is ready for launch.” The UAE’s larger plan to take a leading role in space exploration includes the lunar expedition. If the moon mission is successful, the UAE and Japan will become the fourth country after the United States, Russia, and China to land a spacecraft on the moon’s surface.

An Emirati spacecraft has already been placed in orbit around Mars to examine its atmosphere. That probe was launched by the UAE in collaboration with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries of Japan, swinging into Mars’ orbit in February 2021.

The Rashid rover will investigate the lunar surface, lunar surface mobility, and the interactions of various surfaces with lunar particles. Two high-resolution cameras, a tiny camera, a thermal imaging camera, a probe, and other tools will be carried by the 10-kilogram (22-pound) rover.

To provide high-resolution satellite imagery, the UAE intends to build the most cutting-edge commercial satellite in the Middle East. It has also established the challenging objective of establishing a human settlement on Mars by 2117.
