Ten Thousand UAE Students Send Postcards to Space

Emirates Post Group (EPG) recently launched the "Postcards to Space" initiative in partnership with "Club for the Future", "UAE Space Agency", "Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre" (MBRSC), and "AzurX".

The "Postcards to Space" initiative reaches more than 10,000 students from schools across the Emirates, especially from the primary/elementary education level, encouraging them to express their vision for the UAE in the next fifty years through dedicated postcards designed for this initiative.

Various school visits across the country began on 28th November.

The postcards will be transported by Emirates Post, the UAE’s official postal operator and leading express provider, to the United States of America.

The cards will then be placed onboard Blue Origin rockets and sent into space.

"Flown to Space" will be stamped on each postcard before being returned to the students as a special souvenir on the occasion of the UAE’s Golden Jubilee.
