UAE's Hope Mars mission was launched on 20 July: Objectives, instruments, what to expect after the launch
One of Hope's unofficial objectives is to aide the science community in studying how Mars evolved into the Red desert we know.
Despite being the third-richest country in the world, the UAE’s scientific and engineering community is still small.
UAE's Hope probe to Mars launch further delayed due to bad weather in Japan; will attempt to launch between 20-22 July
The weather delaying launch isn't expected to be severe or lasting, according to the ops team, which is confident of making the current launch window.
