International integration: The path from the Moon to Mars

International CollaborationUAE National Space ProgramArtemis AccordsSpace ExplorationGateway Program

International collaboration is crucial for advancing human exploration of Mars. The UAE National Space Program started in 2006 with the Applied Development Program and has since expanded to include missions like Hope exploring Mars and a human space flight program. The Artemis Accords aim to create a global coalition for human spaceflight with norms of behavior promoting peaceful cooperation and interoperability. The difficulty of space exploration brings humanity together to conquer challenges, as seen in the Artemis program. Artemis Accords offer opportunities for nations with fledgling space programs to participate in various missions and research collaborations. Bringing new voices into space exploration conversations can lead to innovative ideas and approaches. The success of the Artemis Accords is evident as other nations are discussing how to implement the Outer Space Treaty, aiming for transparency and cooperation. The Artemis Accords focus on the rescue of astronauts and interoperability among signatories. Benefits of having a permanent settlement off Earth include the ability to conduct more science with humans in the loop and explore sociology and psychology aspects.
