Space Expo

The virtual event, aimed at probing the benefits, solutions and challenges of exploration beyond our planet’s orbit, will also  bring together some of the brightest stars in space travel including Her Excellency Sarah Al Amiri, UAE's Minister of State for Advanced Technology, chairwoman of the UAE Space Agency and science lead for the Emirates Mars Mission.

The event, which is open to the public, is hosted by Expo 2020 starting tomorrow and on Tuesday during World Space Week. The two-day virtual event will highlight the latest innovations in space research and travel, while also providing a platform to discuss focus areas including space exploration, governance and law, space data and remote sensing, and the UAE’s space landscape. It will also feature James L Green, chief Scientist at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). 

The virtual event underlines the Expo’s commitment to bring together the world’s most ambitious minds, across 10 thematic weeks, to address some of the greatest challenges facing the planet.

Space Week during Expo 2020 will also feature space projections and shows that depict the UAE’s incredible space journey, held at Al Wasl Plaza – the beating heart of the Expo site that features one of the largest 360-degree projection surfaces in the world.
