Success as the Hope Probe reaches Mars, proving the ‘impossible is possible’

The UAE’s Mars Hope Probe successfully entered orbit around Mars, making the UAE only the fifth country or entity to make it to Mars.

The live-streamed event happened within the last few hours. And HH Sheikh Mohammed was one of the first to announce the incredible news.

The Emirates Mars Mission Hope Probe is the first Arab interplanetary mission and will explore the Martian atmosphere and weather system over two years.

The insertion into a Mars orbit was one of the trickiest points of the probe’s journey.

But everything seemed to go like interplanetary clockwork as the Mars probe settled into the correct orbit around the red planet.

A huge congratulations to everyone involved!

UAE visitors to get ‘Martian Ink’ passport stamp on arrival

The UAE was quick to celebrate the historic arrival of the Hope probe in the Mars orbit by giving UAE visitors a ‘Martian Ink’ stamp on arrival.

Visitors coming into the country will have their passport stamped with a very cool Martian Ink. And – cool geek out alert – the ink is apparently made from the same rocks as those found on Mars.

The special stamp reads ‘You’ve arrived in the Emirates. The Emirates is arriving at Mars on 09.02.2021.’ And it also includes the country’s famous phrase ‘Impossible is Possible’.

The limited-edition ink is made from volcanic red rocks, very similar to the ones found on Mars.
