Images of the “Hope Probe” of Mars adorn Twitter’s space

Days after the Emirates Mars Exploration Project, “The Hope Probe”, made the first batch of scientific data collected by the probe available, researchers and space science enthusiasts from around the world downloaded multispectral, high-resolution images, and posted them through their accounts on the social networking site “Twitter”. The photos, taken by the Hope Probe, adorned the Twitter space, with space enthusiasts and those interested in exploring planets sharing and commenting on them.

The Emirates Mars Exploration Project, the “Hope Probe”, published in early October a batch of data collected by the probe between February 9 and May 22, 2021. It includes unique images of Mars that monitor unprecedented observations about the behavior of the red planet’s atmospheric gases and the interactions that occur. between them.

In the first ten days of making the data available to the global scientific community and the public, through the data center within the project’s website, approximately 2 terabytes were downloaded, including 1.5 terabytes of exploration camera data, which the probe carries on board.

Engineer Hessa Al Matrooshi, Deputy Director of the Emirates Mars Exploration Project, “Hope Probe” for Scientific Affairs, said: “We were pleased to see the Mars images taken by the probe spread in the Twitter space through the public locally and globally. The UAE mission to explore Mars.

The EXI digital exploration camera is one of 3 advanced scientific devices carried by the “Hope Probe” to study the planet Mars, and convey a comprehensive picture of its climate and different layers of its atmosphere.

The scientific mission of the Emirates Mars Exploration Project, the Hope Probe, focuses on studying the relationship between the upper and lower layers of the Martian atmosphere, which allows the scientific community to form a comprehensive picture of the Martian climate and atmosphere at different times of the day and throughout the seasons of the Martian year.

The Hope Probe orbits in its planned elliptical scientific orbit around Mars, which ranges between 20,000 and 43,000 km, with a tilt toward Mars of 25 degrees, giving it the unique ability to complete one orbit around the planet every 55 hours, and capture comprehensive observations of the planet every nine days, during its Martian year-round mission (two Earth years) to map the dynamics of Mars’ atmosphere.

The Emirates Mars Exploration Project “Probe of Hope” is the culmination of knowledge transfer and development efforts, which began in 2006, which saw Emirati engineers work with scientific partners from all over the world to develop satellite design and engineering and manufacturing capabilities.

3 devices

The “Probe of Hope” carries three innovative scientific devices to monitor the atmosphere of Mars, and it weighs about 1,350 kilograms, the equivalent of a small SUV. It was designed and developed by the engineers of the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Center, in cooperation with academic partners, including the “Physics Laboratory” Atmosphere and Space” at the University of Colorado at Boulder, Arizona State University and the University of California at Berkeley.
