China's first Mars exploration mission Tianwen-1 aims to complete orbiting, landing and roving in one mission, and to obtain scientific exploration data on Mars.

Propellant will be injected into the rocket immediately after additional purposeful checks and remaining inspections.

It took about two hours to vertically transport the large rocket to the launching area of the center Friday morning. And then the rocket will be released according to routine.

It is after every 26 months that Mars and the Earth come closer to each other as the distance between the two is about 55 million kilometers (34.1 million miles). The spacecraft, named Amal, which is Arabic for Hope, is an orbiter scheduled to launch from Japan in July 2020, on what will be the Arab world's first interplanetary mission.

There ought to be no rainfall, with a ground wind pace of beneath 8 meters for every next and horizontal visibility earlier mentioned 20 kilometers, Beijing-primarily based area pro Pang Zhihao informed the World Instances.

A wind velocity big difference in the decreased and upper air could twist the rocket's body, foremost to failure, he said.

The lift-off of the United Arab Emirates' "Hope" probe, originally planned for Wednesday, is now set for 6:58am Monday (21:58 GMT Sunday) from Tanegashima Space Centre in southern Japan, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries said.

"Weather conditions disorders in Hainan are in basic improved than those in Japan".

Experts at the center said the spaceflight control would be challenging as the probe would take almost seven months to land on the red planet, which at the farthest point of its orbit is about 400 million km from Earth.

The Long March-5 carrier rocket is China's largest launch vehicle. Once the probe was sent into the Earth-Mars transfer orbit, the control center's two monitoring stations, in Kashgar of northwestern Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, and Jiamusi, in northeastern Heilongjiang Province, will provide monitoring support for it.
