UAE Hope Probe: 5 things You Must Know About Emirates Mars Mission

On 2 December 1971, the Soviet Union’s Mars 3 spacecraft carried out the first successful landing on the surface of Mars. Interestingly, on that same day, millions of miles away back on Earth, one of the newest space-faring nations – United Arab Emirates (UAE) – was born. Now, almost half a century later, the UAE has launched its own spacecraft to Mars. It is called ‘Hope Probe’. The Hope Probe’s arrival on Mars coincides with the UAE’s 50th year as a nation, adding to its glory.
 
The name is not a wishful expression, although all space missions require faith that they will reach their destination. Rather, Hope is a signal of optimism to young people in the Emirates and beyond, of what can be achieved when people come together and work on a scientific challenge.
 
But it’s true, the UAE, a nation which is just 50 years old, has sent the Probe to Mars in 2020, on a voyage of scientific discovery. It may seem ambitious for such a young nation with very little history in science or engineering. But one thing the UAE has in abundance is a strong desire to progress and become one of the world’s leading nations in the fields of technology and innovation – as it moves on from oil-based economy to knowledge-based.
 
The Probe is currently near Mars, travelling at over 120,000kmph. It must fire its braking engines for 27 minutes in a bid to ensure that it is captured by the planet's gravity.
