UAE Sends Rocket to Mars – level 2
Last week, The United Arab Emirates (UAE) sent a rocket to Mars. The UAE became one of a few countries that started a successful mission to Mars. Also, it was the first space mission from the Arab world.
The ship is called ´Hope´, and the UAE launched it on Sunday morning from Japan. There is no crew on board. The ship will go around Mars and it will study the planet´s weather for a full year, which lasts 687 Earth days. Such a long mission is not usual because past missions studied the planet only for a short time and only at some time of the day.
The journey to Mars is 38 million miles long, and scientists expect the ship to get to the planet in February next year.
