A satellite built by UAE-based students will be launched into space later this month aboard a Russian Soyuz rocket.

MeznSat has been developed by pupils at the American University of Ras Al Khaimah and Khalifa University in partnership with the UAE Space Agency.

It's designed to analyse greenhouse gas emissions in the UAE's atmosphere as well as the red tide phenomenon.

The data from the satellite will be monitored and processed by a team of students from the ground station in YasSat Space Lab at Khalifa University.
