Dubai: United Arab Emirates in association with Ministry of Health Private Sector will establish a hospital in space. This was announced by the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHP) during the four-day event at Arab Health 2018.
The world’s first space hospital, Emirates Space Hospital, aims at providing treatment facility to astronauts and projecting use of nanotechnology for treatment.
Khaleej Times has quoted Dr Kulthoom Al Belooshi as saying “The astronauts will be treated in space but all treatment will be controlled on earth using nanotechnology,” said, director of hospital administration at the ministry.
United Arab Emirates plans to discover the surface of Mars in 2020, meanwhile, the project will be tested on earth and will be used on Mars.
Explaining how the technology will work, Thierry Karim Louesse, founder and CEO of Fractal Systems said that surgeons will only have to inject nano-robots into the bloodstream. “This will end the need for surgical intervention as the nano-robots will seek out the sick cells and repair them internally.”
