The UAE's Hope Probe is nearing the halfway mark in its journey towards the Red Planet.

It has covered a distance of nearly 216 million km and has almost another 265 million km to go before reaching the Mars orbit in February 2021.

The Probe was launched from Japan's Tanegashima Space Centre on July 20.

A website was recently launched by the Emirates Mars Mission for tracking the Hope Probe in real-time.
