The UAE to Bring Its 2117 Mars Manned Mission to the Metaverse

The UAE is one of a few selected countries whose ambitions are focused on other planets' colonization. Moreover, it is one of the world's most technological countries keen on web3 and metaverse adoption. 

As proof of everything stated above, the United Arab Emirates has rolled out the wave-making news on its plans to simulate its Mars manned mission in the metaverse. The country's Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) plans to send people to the Red planet almost in a century, in 2117. But currently, 95 years prior to the mission, the MBRSC partners with web3 company Bedu to create a metaverse simulation of the 2117 manned flight to Mars. The first-of-its-kind ambitious web3 project will immerse visitors into the open space and Mars landscapes as close as possible to the real ones, alongside creating awareness around the challenges of exploration and colonization.

As we set our sights on ever more challenging destinations for exploration with humans and robots, innovative ideas and future thinking will be critical to helping us reach new milestones. Concepts like this will be supported by MBRSC as we believe this will help us expand our scope of bigger possibilities,” Adnan Al Rais, Mars 2117 program manager at the MBRSC said.

According to MBRSC, the center plans to form a committee to work in a close-knit partnership with Bedu to deliver the most accurate facts about space and Mars. The web3 platform, in its turn, will provide a profound web3 and NFT educating course to the MBRSC staff.

Given the fact of the upcoming 2117 project's significance, the space and Mars simulative metaverse will be a truly exceptional never-before-seen experience in the metaverse.
