The United States and China both launched probes to Mars but the United Arab Emirates? WTF am I missing here? Side question, why are all three seemingly racing to send the probes at around the same time? Mars Launch

Just like in the movies and your bike, the stars are in optimal alignment.

Okay, I get that but what's with the Arabs going there? Is there oil on Mars?
Yes, there is oil on the moon since it is caused by carbon under extreme pressure and not rotted dinosaurs and vegetation as we have been led to believe. Yeah, sure, some types of oil come from pressurized organics, but its not the only way. Also, there are a fuck-ton of rare minerals and metals (esp titanium) near the surface on the moon. Oh, and many craters have diamonds too, just like on earth for whatever that is worth....

Well, if you define oil only as hydrocarbons, (organic derived pressurized hydrocarbons is the commonly used definition of the word oil), but still - these are fairly common elements and all it takes is long term sustained pressure. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons is what is on the moon, like Napthalene, Anthracine, and Phenanthrene - similar to but not as nice as sweet pure propane (and propane accessories).

Lately the Chinese discovery of water just below the surface of the moon has gotten some interest. Along with helium-3 isotope in great abundance found by India missions represents a tremendous source of nuclear material.

And the Titan moon of Saturn is definitely rich in hydrocarbons.
