The United Arab Emirate's orbiter "Al-Amal" or "Hope" is set to reach Mars on Tuesday, February 9 marking the Arab world's first mission to the red planet.

After entering Mars' orbit, the unmanned spacecraft will start circling the equator, allowing to build a detailed picture of the planet every nine days, including spots on the surface at every time of the day.

The mission's goal is to study how different layers of the atmosphere interact with one another and how the interactions change at different times of the day and year.
