These results may help identify target areas where geologic instruments should be placed on future missions to Venus. They are named Coronae . The science behind the formations called coronae is similar to that of the Hawaiian Islands, explain researchers from the University of Maryland .
The timing of the missions has been coordinated to coincide with the period where Earth and Mars are nearest. "It's a huge step in terms of space exploration to have a nation like the UAE taking that giant leap to send a spacecraft to Mars", Astronomer Fred Watson said.
DAPA earlier said the satellite was forecast to separate from the rocket 32 minutes after launch at an altitude of about 630 kilometers above the equator and will try to make contact with the Toulouse Space Operations Center in the French city of Toulouse 18 minutes later.
Once there it will study the Martian atmosphere, monitoring things like how much oxygen and hydrogen are lost to space over the course of one Mars year (a bit under two Earth years). Omran Sharaf, the UAE Mars mission director, told journalists in Dubai that the probe was sending signals that would be analysed later but everything appeared good.
The heat index, or feels like temperature combined with the relative humidity will be as high as 100 to 106 degrees! Another surge of heat may arrive by next weekend. This is typically the hottest part of the summer in Alabama, and the hot weather will continue on into next week. "In addition to remaining vigilant against COVID-19, I urge all Delawareans to practice heat safety during this stretch of high temperatures expected in DE and our region", said Governor John Carney.
Hazards included wind gusts near 100 kilometres an hour and the risk of tornadoes. Weather radar tracked "a line" of thunderstorms moving toward Halton Hills from Georgetown with the force to possibly generate tornadoes, Environment Canada said.
