UAE postpones Mars mission due to weather at Japan launch site

first_imgThe United Arab Emirates has postponed to July 17 the launch of its mission to Mars due to weather conditions at the launch site in Japan, the UAE government communications office said on Tuesday.The UAE’s Hope Probe was due to set off from Japan’s Tanegashima Space Center at 12:51am UAE time on Wednesday (2051 GMT Tuesday) for a seven-month journey to the red planet where it was due to orbit and send back data about the atmosphere.”The UAE’s space mission, the Arab world’s first interplanetary mission, will launch on Friday July 17, 2020 at 12:43am UAE time (July 16, 2020 at 8:43pm GMT) from Tanegashima Space Center,” the government communications office tweeted. There are currently eight active missions exploring Mars; some orbit the planet and some land on its surface. China and the United States will send another two this year.The UAE, an oil-exporting nation, first announced plans for the mission in 2014 as part of efforts to diversify away from hydrocarbons and develop a knowledge economy, aiming to reach the planet by 2021.With a population of 9.4 million, most of whom are foreign workers, the UAE lacks the scientific and industrial base of the big space-faring nations. It launched a National Space Program in 2017 to develop expertise in space science among Emiratis.Emirati Hazza al-Mansouri became the first Arab in space in September 2019 in a flight to the International Space Station.To develop and build the Hope Probe, Emiratis and Dubai’s Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) worked with US educational institutions with space science expertise.The UAE government has announced an ambitious goal of a Mars settlement by 2117. Topics :last_img read more

‘I feel bad for him’ – PSV star says sorry for leg-breaking Luke Shaw challenge

first_img Hector Moreno’s challenge on Luke Shaw Hector Moreno has apologised to Luke Shaw for the challenge which left the Manchester United full-back with a broken leg.Shaw is facing six months out after suffering a double leg fracture in a nasty-looking tackle from Moreno during United’s 2-1 defeat to PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday night.The 20-year-old left the field in tears, and it was clear Moreno – who went on to score the equaliser – was affected by the incident too.“I feel really sorry,” the PSV defender said. “I just feel really bad because I was involved in the accident.”The challenge from Moreno – which went unpunished – was condemned by United manager Louis van Gaal after the match.Bbut his opposite number Phillip Cocu insisted his defender was not a dirty player, and Moreno does not believe he deserved to be penalised.When asked whether he thought he had committed a foul when he challenged Shaw, Moreno said: “I think not. I think I played the ball, but in this kind of situation I don’t care if it was a foul, I feel bad for him, and for his family.“I don’t know how bad it is, but I had myself a situation like that during the World Cup and it’s bad.“It’s difficult to say what happened. Now I just hope he will be back as soon as possible.” 1last_img read more
