UAE Ready to Send Spacecraft 'Hope', to Mars

  • The United Arab Emirates is ready to make history with the scheduled launch of a spacecraft "Hope" to Mars. UAE would be the first Arab nation to send a mission to the Red Planet. The purpose is likely to study Mars' weather and climate, and many more related studies. The crewless spacecraft is set to lift off from Japan's remote Tanegashima Space Center on Tuesday, but poor weather may delay the take-off of the probe until August 13.
