First Emirati mission to the Moon will now launch on November 30 The new launch date remains contingent on the weather status and other conditions The UAE has announced a new date for the launch of its first mission to the surface of the Moon. The new launch date of the mission has been set to November 30 at 12.39pm local time, two days after the original date, the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) has announced. The new date, however, remains contingent on the weather and other conditions. MBRSC had signed an agreement with Japan’s ispace in 2021, enabling the latter to provide payload delivery services to the Emirates Lunar Mission. Upon landing, the Rashid rover will explore the characteristics of the lunar soil, the petrography and geology of the Moon, dust movement, surface plasma conditions, and the Moon’s photoelectron sheath. Meanwhile, the integrated spacecraft will take a low-energy route to the moon rather than a direct approach, taking about five months to launch, in March 2023, according to ispace.
