Revealed: How Sheikh Mohammed’s voice was heard from outer space

The Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) announced on Wednesday that its recently-launched Nayif-1 nanosatellite has transmitted its first message in Arabic from space.

The satellite quoted Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

Translated into English, the quote read: “The renaissance of peoples, nations and civilizations starts with education; and the future of nations starts at their schools.”

Ground stations all over the world that operate on amateur radio bands were able to receive the message, MBRSC said in a statement.

The message was transmitted from Nayif-1’s ground station, located at the American University of Sharjah (AUS), it added.

Nayif-1 is an educational project launched by MBRSC in cooperation with AUS with the goal of providing hands-on experience to Emirati engineering students on designing, building, testing and operating nanosatellites.
It was launched successfully into space on February 15 on board a PSLV-C37 rocket, from Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota in India…. see more
