Hoping for Success

Hope spacecraft orbiting Mars

Hope, a Mars mission from the United Arab Emirates, is depicted in orbit around the Red Planet in this artist’s concept. It is scheduled to enter orbit on February 9, just two days after the spring equinox in the northern hemisphere, to study the Martian atmosphere and the planet’s weather patterns. It is one of three Mars missions scheduled for arrival this month. [EMM]
