The Emirates Mars Mission (Hope Probe) unveiled the seventh batch of new scientific data on the atmosphere of Mars, gathered by the Emirates Mars Infrared Spectrometer (EMIRS), the Emirates Mars Ultraviolet Spectrometer (EMUS) and the Emirates Exploration Imager (EXI) from 1st September to 30th November, 2022.
Zakariya Al Shamsi, Director of the Hope Probe Project, said that the data provided by the project is a critical source of knowledge for the international scientific community amidst the growing global interest in Mars and related information. He noted that the mission team would continue to analyse and announce new data on Mars every three months.
The seventh batch of information, collected on 25th August; 6th, 13th, 15th and 24th September; 1st, 6th, 15th, 19th, 20th and 29th October; and 9th, 10th and 16th November, 2022, includes high-definition observations of dust movements captured by EXI.
