With the ever-growing Mars missions conducted by various countries and companies, one country have recently announced its plans to colonize the red planet in the next 100 years. Following after the announcement made by SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, of bringing the first human colonists to Mars in the 2020s, Musk has revealed that his company also lacks the funding to implement its bold plans without a major government partner.

UAE In 2117
According to reports revealed by Mirror Online, dubbed as Mars 2117, authorities from the said nation said that it will allegedly create a city that can house up to 600,000 people, complete with oxygen supplies and inner-city transportation. It was found that the announcement was made by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE's vice president and ruler of Dubai, who has then proceeded in tweeting out a few mock-up pictures of what the ambitious settlement will look like. Additionally, the Sheikh has also revealed that the new project is a seed that the country plants today, and authorities are expecting future generations to reap the benefits, driven by its passion to learn to unveil a new knowledge.
Meanwhile, as per Fox News, way back in 2014, UAE had previously revealed its interest in Mars along with a follow up that was made last year announcing that the country has been working with NASA on a range of space projects, one of which hinted at a joint mission to the red planet. However, despite UAE's interest, it isn't the only one talking about colonizing Mars. Elon Musk, head of SpaceX, also has grand plans for the planet. Apart from SpaceX, others who have also shown an interest in getting humans to Mars in the next 20 years include NASA, Japan's aerospace exploration agency, and China's national space body.
Furthermore, as of the press time, the country has also been planning the world's first-ever Islamic mission to Mars. Consequently, they have also claimed that their unmanned spacecraft, "Hope," is slated to launch from Japan in 2020. Ultimately, UAE officials have admittedly said that since the landing of people on other planets has been a longtime dream for humans, the country's aim is to lead international efforts in making this dream a reality.
