His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum,  Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has called on the UAE residents to come up with a name for the Mars probe that will be launched from the country in 2021.

Sheikh Mohammed made the announcement on his Twitter page, where he asked people to share their suggestions using the hashtag #Mars_Probe.

“The UAE Mars probe is an Arab-Islamic project and so we want all Arab youth to be involved in it. We want to open for them the doors of hope and optimism, we want their ambition to reach and embrace the sky,” said Sheikh Mohammed via Twitter.
