UAE's Hope Probe Shares Second Tranche of Scientific Data

The Emirates Mars Mission, the first interplanetary mission undertaken by an Arab nation, has released the second tranche of observations to a global audience of scientists, researchers, educationalists and enthusiasts.

Over 76 GB of raw data has been uploaded to the EMM Science Data Centre and is available at

https://sdc.emiratesmarsmission.ae as part of the second batch of scientific observations collected by the Hope Probe.

The data represents the core result of the scientific mission to explore the climate and atmosphere on Mars.

The Hope Probe is carrying three state-of-the-art instruments:

  • The Emirates Exploration Imager (EXI) camera to capture high-resolution, digital coloured images of the Red Planet to measure ice and stratospheric ozone in the lower atmosphere;
  • The Emirates Mars Infrared Spectrometer (EMIRS) to measure temperature and the distribution of dust, water vapour and ice clouds;
  • The Emirates Mars Ultraviolet Spectrometer (EMUS) to study oxygen and carbon monoxide levels in the planet’s thermal layer, as well as the presence of hydrogen and oxygen in the upper atmosphere.

The scientific mission focuses on collecting data and observations that help study the relationship between the upper and lower layers of the Martian atmosphere, which offers a comprehensive overview of the Red Planet’s climate and its atmosphere at different times of the day and throughout the seasons of the Martian year.
