About mars 2117
Driven by the passion of UAE’s wise leadership to unveil new knowledge, the Mars 2117 project represents a major ongoing contribution to humanity’s interplanetary endeavours.
In 2017, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Maktoum, directed the MBRSC to lead the country’s ambitious project to build the first human settlement on Mars by 2117, in collaboration with major international space institutions. The Mars 2117 strategy is a part of the UAE space programme.
The Mars 2117 strategy is a part of the UAE National Space Programme. It’s goals are supported through four main pillars:
Research & Development
Enabling the UAE’s pioneering role in developing life support systems that would make it possible to live on other planets, and to develop capabilities to gather more information about the surfaces of these planets
Instilling a culture based on discovery and exploration in future generations of all education levels
Empowering the UAE and the Arab world to contribute to humanity’s efforts on the journey to Mars and beyond by enabling and building capabilities
Fostering effective partnerships with leading organizations and individuals in order to achieve the programme’s goals.
To prepare cadres of space scientists and engineers that can enable the UAE to contribute to the development of space travel and planetary settlement capabilities, in particular the establishment of a human colony on the red planet
To develop scientific and innovative technical capabilities necessary to achieve a sustainable human settlement on Mars.
To enable the UAE to contribute to the development of life support systems and solutions for human settlements on other planets, while simultaneously harnessing scientific research to address the challenges of food, water and energy security on Earth
Mars Science City
In line with Mars 2117 Strategy, Mars Science City will comprise laboratories that will stimulate the red planet’s terrain and harsh environment for food, energy and water, agricultural testing and studies.
