DUBAI: The United Arab Emirates is partnering with Japanese space company iSpace to help transport a UAE rover to the moon in 2022, the company announced Wednesday. 

Under the agreement, iSpace said it would also provide the Emirates Lunar Mission with wired communication and power during the cruise phase and wireless communication on the moon.

This is not the first time Japan and the UAE partner up in space missions. Last year, the first Arab probe launched into space on its way to Mars with the help of Japan’s Tanegashima Space Center and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ H-IIA launch vehicle F42.

The UAE’s Mars Hope Probe recently entered Mars’ orbit in February, marking its spot in the Arab and Muslim world’s history.
