Arabs have launched their first space mission to mars from Japan. It is the first time ever that Arabs are indulging in a Space Mission to Mars which has been met with great excitement and media coverage. They have named it ‘Hope’ or ‘Amal’ and it will be blasted off from Japan on Monday. It is an unmanned probe that will be carried by a Japanese rocket, launched from Tanegashima Space Centre at 6:58 a.m. This was celebrated after an hour from the Japanese Control Room as the probe was successfully detached.
The great celebration and media coverage was widely seen in Dubai as Burj Khalifa lit up hours before the launch with a classic 1o second countdown at the end.
