Since the Emirates Mars’ mysteries Mission made it to the red planet in February 2021,
which produced fascinating findings, it has been nearly two years. The United Arab Emirates became the fifth country in the world to study Martian weather and the first Arab nation to reach Mars.
The Emirates Mars’ mysteries Mission has since fueled innovation in other fields after six years of planning at the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre.
According to Euronews, the UAE Space Agency’s Deputy Director General Ibrahim Al Qasim,
“The choice was Mars because Mars was of great interest to the global science community.” We wanted to send a mission that looked deeper into the relationship between Mars’ mysterious upper and middle atmosphere layers and complemented previous missions.
Seven months after the Hope Probe launched from Japan on July 20, 2020, the uncrewed Mars mission entered its orbit. The time the probe is currently in orbit on Mars is one year or 687 days on Earth. This is likewise the initial time the worldwide science local area has a full perspective on the Martian climate at various times, all through various seasons.”
New Space Initiatives Omran Sharaf, Chairman of the UN Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space and Assistant Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, discussed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ new verticals with Euronews.
“We have another mission that is going to the space rock belt”, he uncovered. ” Regarding the developing constellation of solar satellites known as Sirb, we have an announced mission.
“The Mars mission has been a very powerful, inspiring mission for the youth in the UAE and in the region,” said Ibrahim Al Qasim, the Deputy Director General of the UAE Space Agency. And that was the primary motivation for initially funding this mission.”
New insights into the discrete aurora phenomenon in the planet’s nighttime atmosphere, the location, and evolution of dust storms with unexpectedly turbulent behavior, and a previously unknown phenomenon of a huge worm-like aurora circling the red planet are among the most significant findings to date.
Thomas Reiter, the former Interagency Coordinator and Advisor to the Director General of the European Agency, stated to Euronews, “The UAE has done really a remarkable job here and it also shows that… collaboration [in] the scientific field is extremely important.” A marker for life on Mars
He said that the European mission known as The Trace Gas Orbiter, which has been orbiting Mars’ mysteries since 2016, is looking for various trace gases in the atmosphere, particularly methane, which could be a sign that life has existed.
Thomas Reiter elaborated, “We don’t really have any clear evidence so far.” However, once more, it is necessary to coordinate these efforts and establish the appropriate goals for current and future missions, such as the Mission of Hope.
Rolf Densing, Director of Operations at the European Space Agency, told Euronews, “We live in an age where the orbital environment of Earth is really changing a lot, mainly due to the proliferation of space debris and mega-constellations.”
“Around 8000 objects are currently in orbit around Earth. Then there are businesspeople who intend to launch tens of thousands of satellite-laden mega-constellations.”
The Emirates Mars Mission’s ultimate objective is to establish a knowledge-based economy that is innovative and competitive in order to contribute to the creation of the first comprehensive picture of Mars’ climate and atmosphere. Publish by World News Spot
