T-Minus One Day Until The Emirates Mars Mission Hope Probe Takes Off!
Just after midnight tomorrow night, the UAE will attempt to be the first EVER Arab nation to reach Mars.
The Emirates Mars Mission will travel a distance of 493.5 MILLION kilometres and it will take 7 months to reach Mars. The probe aims to answer key questions about the global Martian atmosphere, encourage global cooperation for continued space exploration and it will be the first probe to provide a complete picture of the Martian atmosphere and its layers when it reaches the red planet’s orbit in 2021. Launching from Tanegashima Space Centre in Japan, you can watch it live at 12.51.27 UAE time on July 15.
Countdown ON for a historic moment in space history!

The probe aims to understand climate dynamics and the global weather map through characterizing the lower atmosphere of Mars
It will aim to explain how the weather changes the escape of Hydrogen and Oxygen through correlating the lower atmosphere conditions with the upper atmosphere and understand the structure and variability of Hydrogen and Oxygen in the upper atmosphere, as well as identifying why Mars is losing them into space.

Get real about space exploration with this slick portable telescope
This portable telescope is a treat to budding space troopers, plus it comes with a smartphone eyepiece adapter to take pics of all the great ‘out of this world’ discoveries that you make
“I bought this as a gift for my son. I finally found something interesting to have his attention. He will keep saying Galileo when he saw the telescope. He knows Galileo always shows with a telescope in pictures of books. So easy to carry with you for the camping trip or another outdoor trip. Great to watch birds and other animals in this product. Image is clear. There are two different sizes of a lens. Choose the correct one depends on the distance of the observing object.”
“I bought this as a birthday gift for my 5-year-old son – his first foray into space. It is very easy to set up with the instructions, works well and it has the part to attach phone so we can take pictures. Comes with a backpack, scope, two different lenses and a tripod. Good starter telescope. Super happy with it!”
Buy it from Amazon for AED 427.
