UAE’s space journey has hitherto been remarkable to say the least, and National Geographic, it seems, agree wholeheartedly.
The American digital and satellite TV network has announced a four-year partnership with the Mohammad Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) to document UAE’s space-related milestones in a four-part documentary series.
Seriously, how cool is that!
The documentary will be a four-part series chronicling the meteoric rise of UAE into space, its achievements and ambitions
