The United Arab Emirates' first Mars mission is scheduled to lift off today onboard a Mitsubishi H-2A booster from Tanegashima Space Center at 2158 GMT today. Among other goals, Hope will conduct studies of the martian upper atmosphere similar (and complementary) to those performed by MAVEN.

Watch the launch live here.

GO HOPE!

Launch was successful. We're in a parking orbit until the Mars transfer injection in about 35 minutes.

Looks like both arrays have deployed; apparently there was some sort of concern with one of them.

On to Mars!
