Even though Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre has once again postponed the launch of the Emirates Lunar Mission, its success is undoubtful.
Tha launch is scheduled for tomorrow, December 1 at 12:37 PM.
Previously the chief of the lunar exploration company carrying the UAE’s Rashid rover on its lander has said he is “very confident.”
It’s a great, exciting moment,
Takeshi Hakamada, founder and chief executive of ispace, told The National in Florida ahead of the launch.
On board the privately funded lander is a small rover developed by engineers at the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre, which aims to spend 14 days studying an unexplored region of the Moon.
The lander will be delivered by SpaceX rocket to the orbit, where it will begin its solo journey to the Moon, with a landing expected at the end of April.
I’m very confident on this first mission because our engineers put best effort possible to mature our technology and we integrated external knowledge as well,
Hakamada said, even though the launch date has been postponed several times and was to take place today, on Wednesday.
The launch is now scheduled for tomorrow, December 1 at 12:37 PM.
