Mars mission: 11,000mph UAE rocket to enter Mars orbit in new study – ‘This is the future’

express– The Emirates Mars Mission, aiming to make the UAE only the fifth nation to ever reach the Red Planet, will enter this desolate world’s orbit at 3.57pm GMT on Tuesday, February 9. But having successfully navigating its seven-month-long and 115.5 million mile (186 million km) journey to Earth’s neighbour, the Emirates Mars Mission’s Hope Probe is now fast-approaching the historic voyage’s most critical element. This involves slowing the spacecraft from its 75,000mph (121,000kmh) cruising speed to something nearer to 11,000mph (18,000kmh).
