The UAE's Hope Mars Mission will search for connections between today’s Martian weather and its ancient climate.
It hopes to become the first expedition to provide a complete picture of the planet’s atmosphere. The probe will orbit Mars from February 2021.
One of the major objectives of the Emirates Mars Mission Hope Probe is to find out how the Martian lower atmosphere responds globally, diurnally, and seasonally to solar forcing. The instruments that will used are:
Emirates Mars InfraRed Spectrometer (EMIRS)
Emirates eXploration image (EXI)
Purpose of Experiment
Understand the processes that are driving the global circulation in the current Martian climate.
Determine the geographic and diurnal distribution of key constituents in the lower atmosphere of Mars on sub-seasonal time-scales
The Emirates Mars Mission "Hope Probe" will reveal many of the red planet's secrets, which could assist in setting up a human outpost on the planet in the future.
Determine the abundance and spatial variability of the key neutral species in the thermosphere on sub-seasonal timescales. The instruments used:
Emirates Mars Ultraviolet Spectrometer (EMUS)
Determine the column abundance and spatial variability of oxygen, and carbon monoxide in the atmosphere.
The first data set received significant interest from scientists, researchers, and space enthusiasts. During the first ten days of the publication of the data on the project’s website, around two terabytes of data, including 1.5 terabytes of images, were downloaded.
UAE scripted history launching the Hope Probe, the first Arab mission to Mars. A proud moment for the leaders and citizens of the country, but more so for humanity, as it will give vital information to scientists on the Red planet (“Hope Probe launch, UAE makes history with first Arab Mars mission,” July 20, Gulf Today).
At a time when the world has been gripped by enormous negativity caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the UAE has shown what goal-setting, hard work, and absolute determination can help achieve.
