Look out, Mars!:3 spacecraft headed to the Red Planet this month

he three nearly simultaneous launches - that of the UAE, China and the US - are no coincidence: The timing is dictated by the opening of a one-month window in which Mars and Earth are in ideal alignment on the same side of the sun, which minimizes travel time and fuel use. Such a window opens only once every 26 months.
