Featuring H.E. Sarah Al Amiri on July 19, 2021

The United Arab Emirates recently joined the small group of nations to have successfully launched a spacecraft to Mars, further proving space is the new domain for international cooperation—or competition.

On this episode, we speak with the woman who led the UAE's successful mission to Mars, and one of the world's rising stars in space and technology: H.E. Sarah bint Yousef Al Amiri. 

She is the nation's first-ever Minister of State for Advanced Technology and Chairwoman of the UAE Space Agency.

H.E. Minister Al Amiri talks with us about those yet-to-be answered questions in the emerging space domain—from opportunities for technological innovation and global peacebuilding, to what it means for national security—and beyond.
