Mars Hope Mission

Hope is a Mars orbiter built by the United Arab Emirates. Scheduled for launch in July 2020, it will enter orbit around the Red Planet in February 2021. It will monitor the Martian weather and study how Mars is losing its atmosphere to space. It is the first UAE space mission beyond Earth orbit, and the beginning of a 100-year plan to establish a colony on Mars.
