United Arab Emirates: The ‘Hope’ spacecraft has successfully completed a seven-month journey into orbit around Mars.

The US spacecraft Amal (Hope) launched the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ H-2A rocket on July 20, 2020 from the Thane Kashima space center in Japan.

Preliminary work on the project began in 2016 with Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President of the United States and Ruler of Dubai.
