UAE’s Sheikh Mohammed Shares Stunning Photos of Mars Moon Taken By UAE Scientist

The UAE Mars mission has captured the most extensive images yet captured of the planet’s Deimos moon.

Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai: Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, released the breathtaking images that were captured by the UAE Space Agency about 100 km near the surface of the Mars moon.

UAE scientists used the Hope Probe of the Emirates Mars Mission to capture a breathtaking picture.

Sheikh Mohammed shared the image on social media, writing: “The Emirates Mars Mission’s Hope Probe has obtained the finest picture of Mars’ moon Deimos, which is 100 km distant”.

Deimos was once thought to be an outlying asteroid caught in Martian orbit, according to speculations. However, the sensors and team of the Hope Probe have demonstrated that, like Earth’s moon, Mars’ moon was once a part of it before separating from it millions of years ago.

“We are proud of our young scientists, the advancement of science, and our role in advancing human knowledge.”

Phobos and Deimos’ origins are unknown, according to Hessa Al Matroushi, the EMM Science Lead.

“The Mars Hope probe’s remarkable performance has supported a whole range of new observations in addition to meeting our originally stated science mission goals,” said Sarah Al Amiri, chair of the UAE Space Agency.

We are extending the Emirates Mars Mission for an additional year due to Hope exceeding all expectations under the given conditions.

As part of its mission to record Mars’ atmospheric dynamics, Hope is now circling the planet, completing one round of the planet every 55 hours and collecting a complete sample of planetary data every nine days.
