DUBAI 25 November 2022: The Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) has confirmed a new date for the launch attempt of the Emirates Lunar Mission.

The inaugural launch of the Rashid Rover is now scheduled to take place on Wednesday, November 30, 2022, at 03:39 am Eastern US Time or 12:39 pm UAE time.

In collaboration with the partners – SpaceX and ispace, MBRSC stated that the integrated launch vehicle will start rolling out to the launch pad Space Launch Complex 40, Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida ahead of launch, said Wam.

Once launched, the integrated spacecraft will take a low-energy route to the moon rather than a direct approach, which means the landing will take about five months after launch, in April 2023.
