UNITED ARAB EMIRATES – “HOPE” space mission
A few days ago the mission of the United Arab Emirates space agency arrived in the orbit of Mars, with the auspicious name of Hope, one of the greatest challenges in history and one of the country’s most daring initiatives.
Hope is an “orbiter”, a satellite that for at least one Martian year (almost two Earth years) will study the climate, meteorology and atmospheric composition of the red planet, in particular the levels of oxygen and hydrogen.
It was built at the University of Colorado’s Laboratory of Atmospheric and Space Physics, and unlike other rovers that populate the surface, it will instead remain in orbit and study the planet from above.
To create awareness in the country of this important fact, a rather unusual event was held.
A few days ago a very strange phenomenon appeared in the sky above Dubai. Local residents were baffled when they saw two huge celestial objects in the night sky.
After the succession of the strangest scientific theories (and not only …), the mystery has been revealed: Phobos and Deimos, the two moons orbiting Mars, have been projected into the sky using a new technology never seen before in the United Arab Emirates .
Two giant 100-meter cranes and a 40-meter advanced screen were used to make the moons appear realistically in the sky and visible from long distances, with the intent to illustrate to UAE residents what Hope is capturing at 500 million. of miles away.
As a first step towards the conquest of space nothing better than to bring the two moons of Mars to Earth.
