The Emirates Mars Mission’s Hope Probe has successfully entered the Mars orbit.

It has sent a signal to the mission control centre confirming this achievement. 

Hope Probe successfully completed one of the toughest moments of this mission which required the spacecraft to work completely autonomously, with no real-time communication.

With this, the UAE has become the fifth nation in history to reach Mars and the third country to reach Mars successfully upon the first attempt.
