Martian Ink
To commemorate the arrival of its Hope Probe to Mars on the 9th of February 2021 and celebrate this historic milestone for the Arab world and humanity, The UAE Government Media Office created a passport stamp printed with a specially created ‘Martian ink’.

An emblem of the country’s unwavering ambition and guiding principle that “Impossible is Possible”, the stamp welcomed all UAE visitors with a memorable reminder of this new era for Arabs in time and space and a special message:

YOU’VE ARRIVED IN THE EMIRATES.
THE EMIRATES IS ARRIVING AT MARS ON 09.02.2021.

The special edition ink was crafted from volcanic basalt rocks extracted from the mountain ranges of the UAE, carefully crafted with the closest and the most similar components to the Martian terrain available on Earth.
