Hope orbiter reaches Mars

Post by brian livesey »

The United Arab Republic’s Hope probe has successfully entered into Mars orbit. The craft was jointly built at the University of Colorado and at the Space Centre at Dubai
Soon China’s Mars lander arrives at Mars. It will orbit Mars for three months before releasing its lander.

It is already very interesting to know the results of the first studies. Still, Mars is now the # 1 target. I am really looking forward to the results, because there were articles in which there were assumptions about the existence of bacteria, since there is water on Mars and presumably some microorganisms can exist.

The presence of water on Mars is only one factor needed to create and sustain life. If there are microorganisms, they might have been seeded by Earth.

I am also looking forward to results of first research conducted on Mars. As we know, Preservance has already landed on Mars and there have been several drone launches. Let's hope this brings results and we learn more about our red neighbor. Moreover I also heard about the possible presence of bacteria on Mars and the threat to them if a person sets foot on Mars. After all, he will bring terrestrial microorganisms from our planet and the ability to distinguish what was already on Mars and what man brought will disappear
