天问一号飞運騎遊達达3亿 …….As of 26th March 2021, CNSA – China National Space Administration– ESA – European Space agency Belt and road initiative mars mission…first Mars exploration mission, Tianwen- Martian Probe One ……. With the China National Space Administration released two sideways images of Mars in the southern and northern hemispheres taken by my country’s first Mars exploration mission, Tianwen-1. In the image, Mars has a “crescent” shape with clear surface texture. The Tianwen-1 probe flew to a distance of 11,000 kilometers from Mars and used a medium-resolution camera to take a panoramic view of Mars. At this time, because the probe is in the sky behind the Mars side (to face the sun as the front), two “sideways” images are obtained. At present, the Tianwen-1 probe has been in orbit for a month, and the high-resolution camera, medium-resolution camera, mineral spectrometer, Mars energy particle Analyzer, ion and neutral particle Analyzer, magnetometer and other loads have been turned on one after another. , Carry out exploration of Mars and obtain scientific data.
The southern hemisphere image was taken by the Tianwen-1 medium-resolution camera on March 16, 2021, Beijing time. At this time, the orbital height of the orbiter was about 11,200 kilometers.
The northern hemisphere image was taken by the Tianwen-1 medium-resolution camera on March 18, 2021 Beijing time. At this time, the orbital height of the orbiter was about 11,500 kilometers.
Previously….. 天问一号飞運騎遊達达3亿 …….As of 17th March 2021, CNSA – China National Space Administration- ESA – European Space agency Belt and road initiative mars mission…first Mars exploration mission, Tianwen- Martian Probe One ……. Tianwen-1 is currently in the mooring orbital phase, and all seven orbiter payloads have been powered on for preliminary scientific exploration, to achieve stable communication between the Earth and Mars, and to provide signal relay services for future patrols landing on Mars. Every two days, it arrives at a near-fire point, only about 280 kilometers away from Mars………
The medium-resolution camera, high-resolution camera, and spectrometer in the payload will pre-select the topography and landforms of the low-latitude landing area such as the southern Utopia Plain. , Sand and dust weather, etc. to conduct detailed investigations to assess the feasibility of the Martian environment and landing timing……
After 3 months of detailed surveys, the orbiter will undergo a certain orbit adjustment and be separated from the lander/patrol unit. The latter will start an independent Mars landing process of about 7 minutes. Due to the long distance between Mars and the Earth, which leads to a communication delay of tens of minutes, it is impossible for the CNSA crew to control the landing process, and must let the lander complete this “black seven-minute” journey fully autonomously…..
