The probe of the first Arab interplanetary mission is expected to enter orbit around Mars on Tuesday, in what is considered the most critical part of a journey to unravel the secrets of time on the Red Planet. “Al-Amal” (“Hope” in French and “Hope” in English), is led by the United Arab Emirates. It should provide a full picture of the temperature dynamics in the atmosphere of the Red Planet. The takeoff of this unmanned spacecraft took place in July 2020 from the Tanegashima space center (southwestern Japan), after two postponements due to bad weather, writes AFP.
