Traveling through time and space & Doing timey wimy stuff.

On 17th July 2020 today on a clear summery day at Wenchang Spacecraft Launch Center at Hainan Province- China- People’s Republic of China  one of many CNSA –China National Space Administration .. In which on an early morning day it was the first realize deployment of the Long March 5 Y4- Chang Zheng 5 Y4 among with the Tianwen One Martian Rover and Lander in which is set to launch on 23rd July 2020.. Or within the Late July August Launch Window…  The Belt and Road Initiative Martian program named Tianwen-1″ consists of three parts: an orbiter, a lander, and a patrol device, with a total mass of about 5 tons. The three major tasks of “winding, landing and patrolling” will be completed in one go.

 

Among it as a The Belt and Road Initiative Martian Tianwen One program- The planetary exploration engineering logo is printed on the front of the Long March 5 Yaosi Chang Zheng 5 Yaosi carrier rocket fairing, and the umbilical cord tower side The logos on the side are: China National Space Administration (CNSA), European Space Agency (ESA), French National Space Research Center (CNES), Argentine National Space Council (CONAE), Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG). 

 

 

It is the  fourth Long March 5 Yaosi Chang Zheng 5 Yaosi carrier rocket to be used to launch China’s first Mars exploration mission, was vertically transported to the launching area at the Wenchang Space Launch Center in south China’s Hainan Province on Friday. In which previously order to meet the needs of the mission, Xi’an Satellite Measurement and Control Center has recently adapted the ground measurement and control communication system. At present, the renovation work and various targeted tests have been fully completed, and the performance indicators meet the mission needs of “Tianwen No. 1”. When the “Tianwen 1” Mars probe successfully entered the earth fire turn…It’ll enter towards its landing site the Utopia Planitia  of  landing attempt, with each site having a landing ellipse of approximately 100 by 40 kilometres….

The new Chinese Mars spacecraft, consisting of an orbiter and a lander (with an attached rover) is developed by the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC), and managed by the National Space Science Centre (NSSC) in Beijing. The lander portion of the spacecraft will use a parachute, retrorockets, and an airbag in order to achieve landing on the Martian surface. If the landing is successful, the lander would then release a rover. Said rover will be powered by solar panels and is expected to probe the Martian surface with radar and to perform chemical analyses on the soil; it would also look for biomolecules and biosignatures. …..

 

The aims of the mission may include the following: find evidence for current and past life, produce Martian surface maps, characterize Martian soil composition and water ice distribution, examine the Martian atmosphere, and in particular, its ionosphere, among others. Simulated Martian landings have been performed as part of mission preparations by the Beijing Institute of Space Mechanics and Electricity…..

During this year, it was China Space Day there was many Celebrations across the country, in which of the light of Covid-19 been contained … in which that didn’t deter celebrating country wide celebrating is a while worthy project in which is the first country’s mission to Mars, finally named on 24th April 2020 is Mars exploration mission named Tianwen No. 1 【转转! 火星 我们 来 了 [加油] at present, China CNSA – China National Space Administration among with its sister organisation is carrying out the development of the first Mars exploration project. According to the plan, in 2020, China will launch the Mars Rover through the Long March V, and achieve Mars orbit, landing and patrol detection through one launch. After the probe is launched, it will take about 7 months to reach Mars…..

The orbiter and rover will carry a total of 12 instruments

Orbiter

Medium Resolution Camera (MRC) with a resolution of 100 m from a 400 km orbit

High Resolution Camera (HRC) with a resolution of 2 m from a 400 km orbit

Mars Magnetometer (MM)

Mars Mineral Spectrometer (MMS), to determine elementary composition

Orbiter Subsurface Radar (OSR)

Mars Ion and Neutral Particle Analyzer (MINPA)

Rover

Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR), to image about 100 metres below the Martian surface

Mars Surface Magnetic Field Detector (MSMFD)

Mars Meteorological Measurement Instrument (MMMI)

Mars Surface Compound Detector (MSCD)

Multi-Spectrum Camera (MSC)

Navigation and Topography Camera (NTC
