UAE’s Spacecraft Enters Martian Orbit After Seven-Month Trip

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “UAE’s Spacecraft Enters Martian Orbit After Seven-Month Trip” – below is their description.

The United Arab Emirates’ Hope spacecraft entered Martian orbit, making it the fifth agency to successfully reach the red planet’s gravitational zone.

The probe arrived at 7:57 p.m. UAE time on Tuesday, according to a statement issued after confirmation reached Earth. That followed the most critical half-hour in its seven-month journey, requiring a deceleration to just 18,000 kilometers per hour (11,185 miles per hour) from 121,000 kph and a reliance on autonomous self-correcting systems.

“The Martian insertion sequence went exactly as planned, to the dot,” Sarah Al Amiri, UAE Minister of State for Advanced Sciences, said in an interview with Bloomberg TV.
