The UAE Space Agency is making new strides every day and will be ready for its first space mission by 2021.

(You can apply to be UAE's first astronaut here.)

That's not all - UAE will be launching satellites (yes, plural) in 2018.

But the Space Agency has made another very exciting (but maybe not as much as a person in space...) earlier this week

An online portal called iShuttle has been launched and it is everything you need to stay updated (and engaged) with UAE's space program.

There are opportunities to contribute your own ideas and solutions to some of the many challenges that comes with space exploration and win prizes for it! 

There are also plenty of competitions to win and be as involved with the Space Agency as possible.

Pretty cool, right?

You can visit the portal here.
