UAE reaches Mars

Al Amal entered an orbit around Mars. Excellent news after its 7-month journey of some 480-million-kilometres. The spacecraft slowed its rate using its main engines for 27 minutes so to let Mars's gravity take over. The CBC article described Mohammed bin Zayed, the U.A.E.'s day-to-day ruler, as ebullient. The orbit will be refined in the coming weeks.


Mohamed Bin Zayed tweeted a report and shared a fantastic image.
