The Hope Orbiter is officially on its way to the Red Planet!
It was a historical event last July 19, when the UAE Space Agency launched the Hope Orbiter aiming to complete the Emirates Mars Mission.
The Little Things is applauding the Space Agency for the successful launch of the Orbiter. What a milestone and proud moment for us all!
And on July 22nd, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, shared to Twitter an image taken 66 hours after the probe took off.
He stated in his tweet “Beyond the sky is where our dreams start.”
The Emirates Mars Mission is designed to orbit Mars and study the Martian atmosphere on a global scale.
Two of their goals are to determine if Mars supported or still supports life and to prepare for human exploration.
Mars or the Red Planet has always been the subject of curiosity among scientists. So far, there have been 18 successful missions to Mars. Fingers crossed that the Hope Orbiter will land safely on the planet and achieve the goals set for it.
The Little Things and I, together with Keysun, congratulate UAE for its probe launching and good luck on this mission!
