UAE’s ‘Hope’ Space Probe Sends First Image of Mars
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) Red planet has sent its first image of Mars. Hope entered Mars orbit last Tuesday. Through which the Arab Emirates became the first Arab country in history to reach the orbit of the planet.
The first picture of Mars sent by Hope is similar to other pictures of the red planet that reach human hands.
According to the British media BBC, Hope has been placed in a wide orbit of Mars. So it can also study the weather and climate of the earth.
The picture sent by Hope shows the north polar of Mars on the top left. On one side of Mount Olympus in the center, there is only sun, while the other side is still covered in darkness.
Mount Olympus is the largest volcano in the solar system. Three volcanoes — Ascraeus Mons, Pavonis Mons, and Arsia Mons, are seen in one line.
A post on the mission’s Twitter account said, “The first picture of Mars sent by Hope Probe is certainly a historic moment for us. At the same time, it added the UAE to Qatar in the advanced countries engaged in space research. We hope to discover new information about Mars in this mission, which will be useful for the benefit of mankind.”
