UAE to Construct Largest Mars Simulation on Earth

The United Arab Emirates has announced plans to construct the largest Mars simulation in the desert near Dubai.  This is part of a larger plan called Mars 2117 which aims to establish a city on Mars within 100 years.  The first step is sending an unmanned probe to Mars by 2021, a project being staffed by a team of more than 100 with an average age of 27 and comprised of 30% women.  The UAE is leveraging interest in this project to encourage science and technology learning among its students.
