The United Arab Emirates launch Mars Hope Orbiter today

As with all the rocket launches, this one too started with a countdown. But, just like many aspects of this mission, the launch from the United Arab Emirates was a historic one. The mission was however not one without hiccups. As it had its own problems with JAXA.

A bigger issue behind the delay was the Coronavirus pandemic which pushed back the mission operations. The mission launched successfully and is going to land on the Red Planet sometime in February 2021. NASA Perseverance rover is also going to launch for Mars by the end of this month and so is the Chinese spacecraft named Tianwen-1.
