      First Arab mission to Mars to launch in July

      The first Arab space mission to Mars is ready for a mid-July start, news wires reported. Named Amal, meaning Hope, the robotic craft is due to lift off from the Japanese island of Tanegashima during a narrow launch window about 14 July. It will pass the 493 million km to the Red Planet for about seven months, and then will remain in Martian orbit for an entire Martian year, 687 days, to gather sufficient data.
