There is not much history when it comes to launching missions into space. It is no lie that the Soviet Union, now called Russia, along with U.S, China, India, and Japan have launched pretty massive space missions for the sake of exploration and to have the upper hand. With the advent of technology, more states are coming forward to take part in this venture.
UAE has decided to be a part of the Mars mission family as for the first time UAE has decided to send its probe called 'Al Amal' to Mars after its successful launch. The state has also declared that for one Martian year this probe will stay in orbit and will be able to land on Mars in the month of February next year.
The planet of Mars will welcome three rockets this year!
Along with 'Al Amal', two more probes have been set in motion by China and the U.S. to be launched for deep planet exploration by the end of 2020. It has also been reported than these rockets will have landers, rovers, and orbiters onboard for the purpose of extensive research. Considering the pace at which the world is getting notable interest in the space planets, in a few more years we might even have our very own space army.
