UAE Hope Probe: First images of Mars are here

The historic journey in space continues for the UAE on its latest mission.

This is great news for the UAE and humankind.

The UAE Hope Probe has sent its first image of Mars back to Earth since entering the orbit of Mars.



The whole of the world, and not least here in Abu Dhabi, has been euphoric when the Hope Probe entered the orbit of the red planet on 9 February.



Here on Earth, iconic buildings shone red in honour of the magnificent achievement, and greetings came in from the world over.

The Hope Probe has been travelling to Mars since its launch in July 2020. Following its seven month journey, the unmanned spacecraft will explore the Martian atmosphere for a full Martian year – around 687 days on Earth.
