"The United Arab Emirates plans to make history Wednesday with the scheduled launch of the 'Hope' mission, which will make it the first Arab nation to send a probe to Mars."
So says an online news article that can be read in its entirety here:
https://www.breitbart.com/news/uae-to-m ... ars-probe/

I'm surpised; I didn't know that this nation was interested in exploring outer space.

"NASA added 6 HD video cameras to its next Mars rover so we can all watch the first footage of a spacecraft landing on another planet"
The above is the title of the following webpage, to which I was directed by Greg Barr:

https://www.businessinsider.com/nasa-ma ... deo-2020-7

Keep in mind that only about half of the attempted landings on Mars have been a success.

There's a bit of fluff to the ATLAS "press release," as if they did something really special. Here's some hard-boiled analysis from the astrometric data obtained by ATLAS and other sources in the hands of a skilled amateur, Bill Gray...

and

https://www.projectpluto.com/pluto/mpecs/tianweb.htm

He's done similar analysis for the EMM (Hope) mission too.
