Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is scheduled to launch a H-IIA rocket as part of the Hope (Emirates Mars Mission) mission. The launch window for the Planetary Science mission is on July 1, 2020 00:00:00 UTC from Unknown Pad, Tanegashima, Japan. Don’t miss this exciting rocket launch! Watch the launch video of the H-IIA and experience the excitement for yourself.
The probe weighs 1.5 ton and includes 3 scientific tools which are the Emirates Exploration imager (EXI), Emirates Mars Ultraviolet Spectrometer (EMUS), and Emirates Mars Infrared Spectrometer (EMIR). The tools are designed to investigate why Mars atmosphere is losing hydrogen and oxygen gases, and what the connection is between the lower and upper atmosphere of Mars. The probe will manoeuvre into Mars’ wide elliptic orbit, between 22,000 and 44,000 km away from the Martian surface, enabling the mission to provide the first global picture of how the Martian atmosphere changes throughout the day, and between seasons.
