I don't want to see any nation that forces theocracy and has its women under death shrouds and veils, to leave the atmopshere of this planet.


Firstly ,it's spelled *Atmosphere

Secondly , I asked humbly not to turn this thread into a Religious or Political debate , they have no room here .


Thirdly , u·ni·ty
ˈyo͞onədē/
noun
1.
the state of being united or joined as a whole.

And this is what space exploration should be about , regardless of religion or politics.



The problem Unity_99 claims to be in contact with aliens they visit were they live, all the family see them on a regular basis but as usual they never are able to provide proof!

Cool, I didn't know that the Arab Emirates had their own space agency. As one poster said earlier in this thread, it would be nice to see the Islamic world return to the golden age of science they once enjoyed.

It's sad to see that this thread slips easily into a discussion about Obama, politics or religion.

We don't need the wrong ambassadars in space.


I actually agree with you, but let me ask you this question:

Do you think that only nation on earth that used nuclear weapons against civilians, the same nation that started too many wars to count them all, was in secret bombing country without even citizen knowing what was going on... helped huge number regions to destabilize.... that country to represent us in space?

Just for your info, it is spelled 'ambassadors'.

Good notice, we really should not go into space...


As for UAE, I hope that education and science progress help them get secular in future...

UAE is not capable (technologically speaking - they don't have the scientific means) to launch a 50kg rocket 30km above the surface of the earth .

they're simply too retarded in science field to do so . they only muslim nation with an actual space agency is Iran .

Iraq also had some plans . guess what happened to that ? yeah . bombed out of existence

Not sure if you know this, but many people find the word "retarded" pretty repulsive. There are plenty of people with good hearts who simply didn't get enough oxygen during development in the womb. So they were born with a disability. I don't think you meant it as a slur, but many won't give you the benefit of the doubt on that.

Also, any country with enough money can have a space program. Usually they work with other, more developed countries for the technical work. And some simply sub-contract the majority of work to their partners. The UAE has a lot of money & they, along with the other GCC countries, get a lot of technology & training from the West. So I see no reason to doubt this story.

BTW, they are only nuclear capable Muslim country, even Taliban are trying to get them back in dark ages...

I know, they are still 'wrong' kind of Muslims, right??

Seems you may want to research that again...


The Emirates Institution for Advanced Science and Technology (EIAST) was established after His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, and Ruler of Dubai, signed a decree on February 6, 2006.[2][3]

EIAST was established in order to promote advanced research and technological innovation, more specifically satellite technology; to build a well established internationally competitive base for human skills development; to position Dubai and the United Arab Emirates as a hub for space technology development internationally; to optimize the potential of EIAST satellite programs, DubaiSat-1 and DubaiSat-2, through broadening their applications; and lastly to provide support to decision makers in all sectors through application of its specialist skills.[3][4]

In order for EIAST to achieve its goal of using space technologies and applications effectively, the institution has pursued four programs: research and development of outer space, satellite manufacturing and system development, Earth observation from satellite images, and ground station services and support to other satellites.[3]

The UAE space agency, called Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre, was founded in 2015 and is dependent of EIAST.[5]



The Institution is establishing its own satellite manufacturing and testing facility in Dubai.[21] The institution will also continue to invest in awareness and public education.

EIAST also plans to develop KhalifaSat,[22][23] UAE's first domestically produced satellite scheduled for launch in 2018 on a Japanese H-2A rocket.[24] It is also planning a robotic orbiter to Mars called Mars Hope that would be launched in the summer of 2020.[25][26][27][28]

They may not be able to build their own rockets for their missions...they aren't as you want to call them, retarded.

Well I guess you missed this...


Since Hussein’s overthrow and the formation of a new Iraqi government, the engineers who worked on Al-Ta’ir have been training new staff about modern satellite technology. They are looking into new concepts such as cubesats, and considering international collaboration. Perhaps in the next few years Iraq will be able to build its first satellite and launch it aboard a foreign rocket, achieving a goal first established over two decades ago.

Seems their plans weren't bombed out of extinction, but only put on hold because of the international response to Iraq invading Kuwait.

It truly is sad to click on a thread hoping to gain information on humans wanting to uncover new information about mars, only to read posts spewing hateful ignorance just because the people heading up the mission are Arab Muslims.

I love space exploration, and the people who make strides towards uncovering new things about our solar system and universe...their ethnicity or religion mean nothing to me. Grow up, seriously some of you just need to grow the bloody hell up

And cheaper than going at it alone.

This is good news. The more people putting money into space exploration instead of other things is great news if you ask me.

There is only one problem I can see arising from this. What happens when the UAE encounters.......

Exactly. If we could all ever learn to get along, Imagine what we could accomplish in Space by combining our funds. ~$heopleNation

They want to be the first to declare Sharia law on Mars.

Honestly, what do the Arabs know about space exploration? Nothing.

Criminals need to be arrested, not partnered up in the space program. We have international laws against what is being done in those countries. Time to send in the international police.

Oh jeezus, calm down now. This is the Space Exploration forum, get a grip already.

So much for unity eh? ~$heopleNation

Well for starters, They historically know plenty about Astronomy, so I don't think its correct to assume that they know nothing. As far as Space exploration in general, well you have to start somewhere if you want to advance your knowledge. ~$heopleNation

wow wow ! calm down guys .

firstly in response to that gent. who thought i was throwing an slur by using the word "retarded" , dude my 4th language is english . alright ? so in my dictionary , retarded is as the same as backwarded . thanks for the input . i'll refrain from using this word from now on .

secondly , UAE is very small country . it has zero industrial infrastructure and human resources to perform such a job . why should i be biased mr.super frog ? if you really think i will trash my neighboring state which is also muslim , in front of you just because they are the "wrong" kind of muslim , i'm sorry dude , but you're using the wrong kind of glasses . you think everyone from our region is a potential secterian jihadi which again shows how you view the world .

Pakistan has no satellite carrier and is not capable of building crap without chinese JV and is a very poor nation . they have the most favorable view in the world when it comes to Iran , so trust me the last place i would trash talk is pakistan .

UAE is a joke compared to pakistan when it comes to technology . pakistan builds its own tanks , UAVs and missiles .

NO . Iran is the only muslim nation present in space with 4 satellite launches by indigenous carriers and 8th in the world to do so .

all other nations build satellites in JV with superpowers in the field like Italy , france , US , russia and china . they are launched by these powers too .

so yeah UAE can buy stuff , it can also buy companies who build stuff . but it cannot build stuff by itself .

again , if you think i'd trash talk a muslim nation in front of you , think again . just stating the truth
