Emirates ‘Hope’ mission sends first images from Mars

UAE’s First Martian Mission Sends First Images of Mars to Earth

We will examine mars atmosphere

The arrival of the spacecraft on Mars made the UAE only the fifth country in history to reach the red planet and the first in the Arab world. The spacecraft equipped with three scientific instruments will create the first full portrait of the Martian atmosphere. The devices in Umut will collect atmospheric data and at the same time measure seasonal and daily changes. These data will help scientists understand how climate dynamics and weather conditions are in different layers of the Martian atmosphere. Experts also hope to learn more about energy and how particles (oxygen and hydrogen) move through the Martian atmosphere.

The face of the Red Planet captured by Hope shows some known locations from other space explorations, such as the extinct Mount Olympus volcano, the largest in the region.

The Hope probe was launched in July 2020 and successfully reached the orbit of the Red Planet in early February. From now on, it is expected to remain close to Mars for two years collecting data on climate change, the formation of sandstorms, and changes in the atmosphere.

Almost with Hope, probes from two other nations arrived in the region. China’s Tianwen-1 has even sent a video of the planet, while NASA sent a rover called Perseverance, scheduled to land on February 18.
