Al Amiri, who led the UAE Hope Probe Mars mission to success, is also the Deputy Project Manager of the Emirates Mars Mission and a member of the United Arab Emirates Council of Scientists.

The UAE made history on 9 February 2020 after successfully entering the Red’s Planet orbit becoming the first Arab country to reach Mars.

"Dreaming of going to Mars is easy; getting there is brutally hard. So it was no small thing when the Hope spacecraft from the United Arab Emirates’ space agency went into orbit around the Red Planet on Feb. 9." Time's article reads.

"It was no small thing either that the person whom experts cite as the most responsible for the UAE triumph was Sarah Al Amiri, the project’s lead scientist, heading a team that is 80% women."
