Manama, Bahrain – In a remarkable display of Arab scientific collaboration, Bahrain and Egypt have secured a prestigious position in the Chang’e-7 lunar exploration mission organized by the Chinese Space Agency. 

This significant venture, slated for 2026, aims to investigate the soil composition of the moon’s south pole, with a particular focus on detecting water ice.

Central to this groundbreaking mission is the development, rigorous testing, and deployment of an advanced multispectral camera. 

This state-of-the-art device is designed to meticulously analyze materials on the lunar surface, potentially providing unprecedented insights into the moon’s resources. 

The project’s inclusion in the Chang’e-7 mission underscores the formidable capabilities and competitive edge of Arab nations in the realm of lunar exploration, showcasing their ability to excel on the global stage of space science.

The foundation of this collaborative endeavor traces back to a Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2022 between Bahrain and Egypt. 

This agreement outlines the strategic partnership’s commitment to advancing scientific boundaries and fostering regional cooperation in space exploration.

Dr. Mohammed Ibrahim Al-Asiri, CEO of the National Space Science Authority (NSSA) of Bahrain, hailed the achievement as a compelling testament to the potential of Arab cooperation in spearheading future space endeavors.

“This accomplishment not only highlights our technical and scientific prowess but also reinforces the importance of regional partnerships in achieving remarkable milestones in space exploration,” Dr. Al-Asiri stated.

Echoing Dr. Al-Asiri’s sentiments, Professor Dr. Sherif Sedqy, CEO of the Egyptian Space Agency, emphasized the significance of this victory in strengthening international collaboration and advancing space missions. 

“The success of this project is a clear indication of our collective ability to contribute significantly to global space exploration initiatives,” Dr. Sedqy remarked.

Dr. Ayman Mahmoud, Director General of the Space Payloads Department at the Egyptian Space Agency, highlighted the innovative technology at the core of the project

“Our multispectral camera is poised to unlock invaluable insights into the moon’s resources, potentially revolutionizing our understanding of lunar geology,” Dr. Mahmoud explained.

Engineer Aisha Al Haram, Head of the Satellite Design Department at NSSA, elaborated on the intricate technical complexities of the project. 

“The development and integration of the multispectral camera have been a challenging yet rewarding process. This project not only enhances Bahrain’s capabilities in space exploration but also contributes to future research and economic development opportunities,” Al-Haram noted.

The collaboration between Bahrain and Egypt represents a significant milestone in the broader context of Arab involvement in space science. 

By securing a spot in the Chang’e-7 mission, both nations have demonstrated their commitment to pushing the frontiers of scientific exploration and contributing valuable knowledge to the global scientific community.

As preparations for the 2026 mission intensify, the focus remains on the meticulous testing and finalization of the multispectral camera, ensuring its readiness for the challenging lunar environment. 

The successful deployment of this technology promises to deliver critical data, enhancing our understanding of the moon’s south pole and its potential resources.

This landmark achievement not only cements the role of Arab nations in the global space arena but also inspires future generations of scientists and engineers across the region to aspire towards new heights in space exploration.
