The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will be the first country in the world of Arab countries to launch a mission to Mars. In the next 40 days, the United Arab Emirates will launch its Mars mission. This mission will reach the orbit of Mars by February next year. The UAE wants to tell through this mission that they too are moving forward in the world of space science.
The United Arab Emirates will launch its ‘Hope Mars Mission’ on 15 July. Its preparation was going on since 2014. Omran Sharaf, the project manager of this mission, said that we want the UAE to be counted among the countries of the world that have reached Mars.
Omran told us that we are not going to take off satellite, rover, or robot on Mars. Rather, they will launch a satellite circling around Mars in its orbit. This will give us information about the entire martian year and the climate there.
The deputy project manager of this mission, Sara-Al-Amiri, said that the UAE’s Mars mission will tell what is the reason for the constant changes in the atmosphere of Mars. How much oxygen and hydrogen is on the surface of Mars.
Sara said that we will give data from Mars to more than 200 institutions around the world to study. It also includes the US space agency NASA. Apart from this, data from Mars will also be examined and studied.
Let us tell you that China and America are also going to launch its Mars mission in July itself. But the mission of China and America has nothing to do with the mission of the United Arab Emirates. The launch window of the three countries is one, but the launch will be different.

Omran Sharaf says that the United Arab Emirates, which became a country 50 years ago, has plenty of money. But now there is also an engineering talent and a scientific base. 50 percent of Mars missions fail. So I do not guarantee success but will complete the effort.
