Space exploration from the United Arab Emirates went to Mars. Now the ambitious Arab country is targeting Venus – including landing on an asteroid.

Since February Al-Amal orbits the spacecraft (hope) United Arab Emirates (UAE) Mars. The first planetary spaceflight in the Arab state is being considered as a gift for the 50th anniversary of the country. The oil-rich United Arab Emirates has seven emirates, including Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The ruler of Dubai and the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum has announced that his country is planning a trip to Venus after a trip to Mars.

The UAE probe begins in 2028 in the direction of Venus

Accordingly, the UAE space probe is scheduled to orbit Venus by mid-2028. The study is expected to approach the planet and orbit in 2029 – then return to Earth. However, only orbiting our planet can gain much speed. Then it goes up to an asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter report. By 2030, the spacecraft is scheduled to fly near the first asteroid.

The study is aimed at exploring a total of seven asteroids in the belt 500 million kilometers from Earth, including landing on one of the rocks or ice floes. The entire work is scheduled to run for five years. The study is expected to travel 3.6 billion kilometers during this period. One of the biggest challenges is that the device approaches the sun up to 109 million kilometers. The study should be appropriately protected. In addition, little solar energy is available for most of the work.

Fourth country to land asteroid?

Coincidentally, if successful, the UAE would be the fourth country to land on an asteroid. Before that, it was developed by China, Japan and the United States. NASA’s spacecraft has a model of the asteroid Pennu on board, which is currently returning to Earth. Pennu made headlines in August, revealing that it was likely to be very slim The object has been colliding with the Earth for more than 150 years Can.

Isa had a study of Venus orbit until 2014. The Mercury Exploration Pepicolombo, launched in conjunction with Japan, has been orbiting Venus for the past few months. The Japanese Akatsuki study has been in orbit around Venus since 2015. In Venus or clouds, researchers found traces of life inside. Decomposing materials can also come from volcanic eruptions.
