UAE Mars Mission Hope Probe:
By studying the weather patterns on Mars, such as the huge famous dust storms that have been known to engulf the Red Planet.
Compared to the short and localized dust storms on earth, the project would provide deeper insights into the climate dynamics of the Red Planet.
It will concentrate on better understanding the connection between the weather changes in the lower atmosphere of Mars.
With the loss of the upper layers of the atmosphere of hydrogen and oxygen.
For the first time, the probe will study the connection between weather change and atmospheric loss.
A method that may have caused the surface corrosion of the Red Planet and the loss of its upper atmosphere.
