Tehran, Feb 25, IRNA – After years of endless efforts, Iranian researchers and scientists were quite successful to design and produce the first ever home-made radio telescope to serve the country's physicians, academicians and university students, Head of Iran's Space Research Center Omid Shokofa said on Monday.
Two proposals submitted by teams led by scientists from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, have been selected to analyze unopened Apollo samples.

The proposals were selected under The Apollo Next Generation Sample Analysis or ANGSA program. Its goal is to is maximize the science derived from samples returned by the Apollo Program in preparation for future lunar missions anticipated in the 2020s and beyond. The newly selected proposal teams will conduct research on specially curated materials from the Apollo 15 and 17 sample collections, including samples that were collected on the Moon and never opened on Earth, as well as samples that have been in cold storage since their initial processing after return to Earth.

The first team, led by principal investigator Jamie Elsila, will study the abundances of volatile compounds that may be precursors to amino acids that have been detected previously in lunar samples. The study will seek to understand if organic compounds are better preserved in shadowed regions on the Moon, and if their abundances vary by depth, which can help scientists better understand lunar chemistry. The work will be carried out in Goddard’s Astrobiology Analytical Laboratory.

DUBAI, March 19 (Xinhua) -- Eleven Arab states, including the United Arab Emirates (UAE), on Tuesday set up the first Arab space organization, whose first project will be developing a satellite to monitor environmental and climate changes.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, UAE vice president and ruler of Dubai, attended the ceremony of signing the charter for the Arab Group for Space Collaboration, held on the opening day of Global Space Congress in Abu Dhabi.

Sheikh Mohammed said the group's first project would be developing a satellite named as 813, the year the House of Wisdom in Baghdad reached the height of its reputation. The satellite will be developed in the UAE.

He noted that the House brought together scientists and translated books of knowledge, and became a place for the region to unleash its scientific energy.

The Global Space Congress, held on March 19-21, is one of the key events bringing together space sector leaders of the Middle East and North Africa region.

The UAE cabinet on March 11 adopted the National Space Strategy 2030, which includes 36 objectives and 119 initiatives benefiting more than 85 entities in the UAE.

The strategy is seen as the general framework for UAE's space industry and activities until 2030.
