The UAE Mars Exploration Project, the Hope Probe, will start next September, sharing the data that it will collect, with a capacity of about 1000 GB, with 200 scientific and research organizations around the world. It will also be available to students and researchers interested in space science, through a platform for big scientific data that will be provided by the Mohammed bin Rashid Center For free space.
Thousands of people interested in space science from all over the world will use the data that the probe will collect throughout its orbit around Mars, to achieve a deeper understanding of the evolution of the climate and planets within our solar system, thus paving the way for reaching a more accurate understanding of the location of the planet and its place in this The vast universe.
With the start of the scientific mission of the probe, the data will be received and deposited in a scientific data center in the UAE through a number of receiving ground stations spread around the world, while the scientific team of the project in the country will index and analyze the data that is available to humanity for the first time, and then share it with the scientific community interested in science Mars around the world in order to serve human knowledge.
The Hope Probe team, which consists of 200 engineers and researchers, was able to design and develop technologies related to the project, with the contribution of knowledge transfer partners such as the University of Colorado in Boulder, the Space and Atmospheric Physics Laboratory, the University of California at Berkeley, Space Science Labs, Arizona State University, and the College of Exploration. Earth and space, while this cooperation was positively reflected through the development of the technical knowledge necessary for the team, and resulted in the development and manufacture of probe components locally instead of supplying technologies from international agencies and companies specialized in the field of space.
There was full cooperation and coordination between the Hope Probe project team with the Mars Exploration Analysis and Planning Group (MEPAG), which is a council of analysts for Mars exploration programs, which includes the supreme body responsible for providing the necessary information for planning any projects or activities related to its exploration, as the probe will be the first of Its kind that studies the climate on Mars continuously “throughout the day” and across all seasons and seasons, as the probes of previous exploration missions used to only take static snapshots at specific times of the day, so the project’s probe will be “the first true Martian weather observatory.” .
The Mars exploration mission, “the Hope Probe”, answers important scientific questions that no previous scientific mission has ever asked in the field of exploring the Red Planet, in coordination with the global scientific community interested in Mars science, while the probe carries 3 scientific devices, designed specifically to provide information The requisite is on “The Causes of the Decaying Martian Atmosphere”, while providing “the first comprehensive picture of how the atmosphere and weather changes daily.
The probe’s scientific instruments consist of a “camera for exploration”, a digital camera to capture high-resolution, color digital images of the planet Mars and to measure ice and ozone in the lower layer of the atmosphere, and a “infrared spectrometer” that measures the temperature and distribution of dust, water vapor and ice clouds in the lower layer. Of the atmosphere, in addition to a “UV Spectrophotometer” to measure oxygen and carbon monoxide in the thermal layer and measure hydrogen and oxygen in the upper atmosphere.
