A replica of NASA’s Mars “Opportunity” Rover landed at Expo 2020 Dubai – thanks to UPS, the Official Logistics Partner.
The rovers – six in total – collect rock and soil samples and look for signs of life on Mars, our nearest neighboring planet. This replica traveled from Washington, D.C. to Dubai for display at Expo 2020’s USA Pavilion.
“I’m so proud of our team and how we were able to work together to crate, insure, transport and move this shipment,” said Derek Irving, UPS director of Expo 2020 operations. “It wouldn’t have been possible without the collaboration of UPSers, the Smithsonian Institute, U.S. government and the USA Pavilion team. This is another example of how we’re moving our world forward by delivering what matters.”
Check out the video of UPS’s transport of the Mars Rover replica, which spanned more than 8,000 miles.
