UAE news today- A historic UAE spacecraft is now on its way to Mars after being launched from Japan.
The spacecraft is traveling about five hundred million kilometers to test the weather and climate of Mars.
The launch of the mission was postponed after two previous preparations due to inclement weather.
The spacecraft will arrive in February 2021, coincidentally the 50th anniversary of the founding of the United Arab Emirates.
Sarah al-Amiri, head of the mission’s scientific team, expressed relief after the successful launch of the spacecraft.
She said the impact on her country was much like that of the United States setting foot on the moon 51 years ago.
That too happened on 20th July.
“Today I am glad that the children of the United Arab Emirates will wake up on July 20 and see their own campaign, which is a new reality. It will inspire them to do something new,” he told BBC News.
This month, including this mission in the United Arab Emirates, three missions are going to leave on Mars.
Why the UAE on Mars?
UAE news today- The UAE has absolutely no experience in designing and building spacecraft.
And they’ve done something that only the United States, Russia, Europe, and India have done before.
But the UAE’s ambition has prompted them to take up the challenge.
Scientists think that these will be helpful in understanding how the wind decreased from Mars or water.
But the Hope Mission will actually become a vehicle of inspiration that will attract young people from all over the Arab region, including the UAE, to study science.
The government says the spaceflight is part of a series of projects that will take the country from an oil and gas-dependent economy to a knowledge-based society.
