The UAE has announced the launch of a project to land a rover on the Moon in the next four years.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, took to social media to announce that the country will send the Emirati-made rover to the Moon in 2024.

The rover will explore “areas of the Moon that have not been reached by previous missions”, Sheikh Mohammed said.

The rover has been named after the late Sheikh Rashid to honour his vision to develop Dubai.

The UAE will be the fourth country to explore the Moon, and the first from the Arab world.
