8:30 PM in the UK, Mags. I am sure there will be talk up beforehand, and that time may not be precise.

Mars weather shouldn't cause a flight delay, though .

Coincidentally, the United Arab Emirates' Hope mission has returned its first picture of Mars.

The spacecraft entered into an orbit around the Red Planet on Tuesday, making the UAE the first Arab nation in history to have a scientific presence at Earth's near neighbour.

This first image will be followed by many similar such views of Mars.


Hope was put in a wide orbit so it could study the planet's weather and climate systems, which means it also will see the planet's full disk.

The image shows three shield volcanoes in a line, as well as Olympus Mons, the largest volcano in the Solar System

Science fiction becoming fact. I get a little emotional about these things it is overwhelming how brilliant humans can be, thousands who never get any recognition making history.
