Titled 'Are we there yet'?

Just a comment on UAE probe 'Hope' entering Martian orbit today followed by
the Chinese 'Tianwen-1' probe entering Martian orbit tomorrow and the U.S. probe
Perseverance arriving on February 18th.

As I understand it, 'Hope' the UAE (United Arab Emirates) probe will only orbit Mars
and survey the Martian atmosphere.

'Tianwen-1', the Chinese vehicle is there to survey the surface and the sub-surface of Mars using radar,
but is also equipped to launch a lander.

'Perseverance' is a lander that is looking for 'habitable conditions' on the Martian surface.

The Arabic translates as ....' are we there yet'?
The Chinese translates as....' are we there yet'?

The American probe chatter needs no translating.
