Based on the LE02805 point panoramic camera stitched image, DOM image and other data, the lunar rover will continue to move towards the basalt distribution area (about 1.2km from the current patrol device, located at 177.5389° east longitude, near 45.4119° south latitude) during the 29th day of the month. The location is located northwest of the current detection point. Related scientific results will be released in time.
Work planned for this month:
(1) The panoramic camera carries out ring shooting detection;
(2) Infrared imaging spectrometer to carry out calibration and scientific detection;
(3) Neutral Atomic Sounder (ASAN) to carry out scientific detection;
(4) The moon-measuring radar conducts simultaneous detection of the path area during driving.
