Hope Mission to Mars from United Arab Emirates

The article at the link below reports on three missions to Mars currently planned for launch in the current (2020) window.

Because this is the first attempt by any Arab nation, this new topic will allow for updates as it proceeds.

Hopefully, like India's first attempt, this one will be successful on the first attempt.

The Chinese mission is described in more detail than I have seen previously.

The mission includes a lander, which would put China in the elite club of Mars landers if it succeeds.

Re: Hope Mission to Mars from United Arab Emirates

UAE have a plan to build a million person city on Mars.

This is essentially a religious mission to prove that Sharia law applies across the whole solar system.

New era of Mars exploration begins as craft nears Red Planet

Part of the mars orbiting is that its going to burn the engines for 27 minutes to slow the satelite down to get it where it needs to be for orbital insertion.
