The spacecraft will collect and send back to Earth over 1000 gigabytes of new Mars data. This information will be received in the Science Data Center in the UAE via different ground stations spread around the world. These never-seen-before data will be catalogued and analysed in the UAE by the Emirates Mars Mission science team, and then shared freely with the international Mars science community as a service to human knowledge.
The data will be used by thousands of members of the world science community for many years to come in ways that, today, we cannot even begin to imagine. Faculty, research scientists, postdocs, and students worldwide will use these findings to better understand planetary and climate development throughout our solar system and, ultimately, to further our understanding of Earth’s place in the Universe.
