The Hope spacecraft will study the weather cycle of the red planet and weather events in its lower atmosphere, such as dust storms, as well as find out how the planet's weather changes in different regions.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) spacecraft 'Hope' has made history by reaching the orbit of Mars. Also, many pictures of the red planet have been sent to the earth. The UAE's National Space Agency said in a statement, "Hope has taken a panoramic view of Mars, in which the surface of Mars is seen shining with sunlight. Its North Pole and the largest volcano Olympus Moons is seen in the pictures. ' This picture of the red planet has also been shared by Crown Prince Sheikh Muhammad bin Zayed Al Nahyan on Twitter.

UAE becomes fifth country to reach Red Planet

It is noteworthy that Hope, the first interplanetary spacecraft of the UAE, entered Mars orbit on Tuesday. According to CNN, the UAE's first mission to Mars reached close to the Red Planet late Tuesday night and successfully entered orbit in the first attempt itself. This was confirmed by sending a signal to the UAE's Mars mission called 'Hope Probe'. With this, the UAE has become the fifth country to reach the red planet. However, UAE is the first country to do so in Arab countries.

Weather map of the red planet will be ready

'Hope' is actually an arbiter, which in Arabic is called amal. It has reached its goal after covering 300 million miles in almost seven months of travel. Scientists say that now 'Hope' will help in preparing the first global weather map of the red planet. According to ExpressDocTodotUK, it is expected that the Al Amal mission will be able to explain the complete picture of Mars' atmosphere and make it easier for future missions.

Hope spacecraft was launched on 19 July last year. The spacecraft will now study the weather cycle of the red planet and weather events in its lower atmosphere, such as dust storms, as well as find out how the climate of the planet changes in different regions. In addition, this spacecraft will help to find out other possible reasons behind the hydrogen and oxygen depletion in the atmosphere of Mars and drastic climate changes.

 A website has also been created to make the information of this mission public, from where its latest information can be taken. From launch to till date, this mission has crossed various stages.
