Arab scientists launch the first probe to the Red Planet to collect the necessary data. The launch will take place in mid-July.
The United Arab Emirates plans to launch the first unmanned probe to Mars. The launch will take place on July 15, 2020, from the Japanese spaceport on Tanegashima Island, Phys.org writes.
The probe was called Hope (Hope). It must travel 495 million kilometers to reach Mars and enter its orbit.
Arab researchers launch Hope to collect data on the Red Planet.
The probe is equipped with a camera, an infrared spectrometer for studying temperature conditions, and an ultraviolet spectrometer for studying the upper atmosphere and traces of oxygen and hydrogen.
The device has solar panels that will provide it with electricity.
“The probe tests are approaching the finish line, and an unmanned flight to Mars should take place in two months,” said one of the project managers Omran Sharaf.
As previously reported, in the US they are testing a toy all-terrain vehicle for Mars. It demonstrates increased patency in the conditions of loose soil.
