UAE NEWS: UAE joins elite space race nations as Mars probe makes first contact


Hope began its 200-day journey to Red Planet early Monday, with the eyes of the world in a small space space. Rocket launch from Japan’s Tanegashima Space Center. Congratulations: Mitsubishi’s Powerful Industries.The UAE joined an elite space club on Monday when it sent a domestic inquiry into the outer rotation on the Mars topic.

Hopes exploded outside the Earth’s atmosphere in Japan’s H-IIA rock before it was assembled and the investigation began a 200-day journey. The pain of hundreds of executives and engineers, and millions of viewers across the Emirates, developed when the project began transferring its first home in Dubai to a central NASA network.

“We have seen the successful launch of Hope in Mars with pride and joy, as we begin a new chapter in space, led by our unique youth,” said Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Chief of Army Staff, said Monday.

“I congratulate the UAE on this unprecedented achievement.” Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Dubai’s Deputy President and Governor, said the investigation was underway on the Red Planet. “We have embarked on a 493-kilometer journey to the Red Planet. May God make our journey easier,” he said.

Over the next seven months, Themba will travel at a speed of up to 120,000kph on his 495-million-mile journey to Mars. Every single man and woman who has been a part of this program will make a significant contribution to science, engineering and technology in the future.

Once there, we will use the tools to study the unique Red Planet climate program, which has been one of its many mysteries. To this point, the mission cost Dh735 million – an exciting budget in terms of space – taking only six years between pregnancy and the explosion. UAE leaders say it will show young people across the Arab world what can happen with education, vision and determination.

“It is a gift to the UAE in the world and proves the potential of the Emirati and the Arab world to achieve great success,” said Hussain Al Hammadi, the Minister of Education, just before the launch. “Mars is a channel and, God willing, the next step will be much better.”

Omar Al Olama, Minister of State for Digital Economics, AI and Remote Working Systems, told The National newspaper that Mars was just the beginning of the country’s ambitions. “This is a huge undertaking. As you know there are three countries targeting Mars this year – the US, China and the UAE,” said Mr Al Olama from the Mohammed Rashid Space Center in Duba, shortly before the explosion.

“Being one of the biggest giants in the space industry, being a young and inferior person, shows a lot. “It also shows that the UAE’s ambitions are on the verge of extinction or could be surpassed by other countries with assets in the space sector.” He said the Emirati engineers and technicians who worked to bring the project have a bright future ahead of them. . “Every single man and woman who has been a part of this program, we are confident that they will make a significant contribution to science, engineering and technology in the future,” said Mr Al Olama.

The Mars mission, following last year’s eight-day emigration by Emirati Maj Hazza Al Mansouri to the International Space Station, will also fulfill the initial dream of Sakhile Zared, Father of the UAE. In 1976, he welcomed Apollo 17 stars Gene Cernan, Ronald Evans and Harrison Schmitt to Abu Dhabi and expressed the desire that one day the Emirates would find its place in space.

“On this day, we live in a momentous time in the Arab world and a dream that belonged to His Used Father, Sheikh Zared,” said Abdulla bin Touq, Minister of Economy. “Today we see the potential of our young people to see their success and we congratulate everyone on this Arab achievement,

More than half of all Mars missions have failed and Hope faces a challenging journey, with many hazards along the way, including high levels of radiation.

As it happened: History made as Hope probe blasts off.What happens to the Hope probe after lift-off?

About two hours after blast-off, Hope’s first instruction was to turn on its heaters to ensure its fuel does not freeze. Temperatures can reach as low as minus 270°C. Two solar panels that generate enough power to run 20 laptops keep the probe’s onboard electricity running. It also has a separate fuel tank. Half of this fuel is reserved to power thrusters that will slow it from 120,000kph to 18,000kph to enter Martian orbit next year.

The other half will keep it in orbit for a full Martian year – 687 days. Hope aims to study the climate of Mars and will send back one terabyte of data over two years, which will be shared, free of charge, with more than 200 research centres around the world.
