Hope (Emirates Mars Mission)

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.
