The UAE aims to establish the first inhabitable human settlement on Mars by 2117. H. H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid said that the project is a seed that the UAE plants today and expects future generations to reap the benefits, driven by its passion to learn to unveil a new knowledge. He issued directives to Mohammad Bin Rashid Space Centre to lead the Mars 2117 project and prepare a 100-year plan for its implementation.
