Saturated with carbon dioxide around the entire planet, at all times of the day, all seasons of the Martian year.

The British newspaper "The Independent" stated that the "Hope Probe", which entered the capture orbit around Mars after an unprecedented maneuver in the history of space missions, after operating the six reverse-propulsion engines at once, for a period of 27 minutes, was the success of the first interplanetary mission in the Arab world.
