NASA said it had reached an agreement to share scientific data between the Emirates Mars Mission and MAVEN mission teams. This should increase the scientific impact of both projects and help unlock the mysteries of the Red Planet.
The MAVEN mission was launched by NASA in 2013. It is designed to study the Martian atmosphere and, in particular, to measure the rate at which it leaks into space. In recent years, the spacecraft has also been actively used to relay data collected by spacecraft operating on the surface of Mars.
In 2020, the Hope Probe made history as the first Arabian-built spacecraft launched to another planet. The mission's main objectives are to study the weather processes and climate of the Red Planet and the interaction of the upper and lower layers of its atmosphere.
According to representatives of NASA, mutual exchange of data will allow scientists to better understand the processes taking place in the Martian atmosphere.
