 天问一号飞運騎遊達达3亿CNSA – China National Space Administration – ESA – European Space agency Belt and road initiative mars mission…first Mars exploration mission, Tianwen- Martian Probe One As of September 15, 2022, the Tianwen-1 orbiter has been in orbit for more than 780 days, and the rover has travelled a total of 1,921 meters, completed the established scientific exploration tasks, and obtained 1,480 GB of original scientific exploration data. The scientific research team has obtained rich scientific results through the research on the first-hand scientific data obtained independently by my country. Through a comprehensive study of typical landforms such as concave cones, barrier craters, and trenches distributed in the landing area, the important connection between the formation of the above-mentioned landforms and water activities has been revealed.

朱融号 The photos taken by the Mars rover before hibernation for one month (April 2022), maybe this is the posthumous work

Currently as to date of the Zhurong Mars Rover is currently at sleep safe mode due to the Martian Sandstorms….. the location of Zhurong taken by the Tianwen-1 orbiter after it hibernated in Zhurong last year. The rut marks left by Zhurong after traveling 1921 meters are clearly visible….. The local dust on Mars captured by the Tianwen-1 orbiter is very layered. This photo was taken by the medium-resolution camera of the Tianwen-1 orbiter on January 6, 2022, and Zhurong went into a dormant state more than three months after this time point. 

The Tianwen-1 mission was approved by the Party Central Committee in January 2016, and was successfully launched on July 23, 2020. After a deep space flight of 475 million kilometers for 202 days, the probe will rendezvous with Mars on February 10, 2021, and successfully implemented the capture and braking to enter the orbit around Mars. After 3 months of detailed inspection of the pre-selected landing area, the Mars landing was successfully carried out on May 15, 2021. On May 22, the “Zhurong” rover successfully landed on the surface of Mars and began to patrol and explore.

On August 15, 2021, the “Zhurong” rover successfully completed the 90 Martian scientific exploration missions, and continued to carry out extended exploration missions. It has traveled 1,921.5 meters on the surface of Mars. Affected by the severe winter cold and dusty weather in the landing area, the rover will enter the winter dormancy mode on May 18, 2022 as designed. Around December 2022, the “Zhurong” landing area will enter the early spring season. will resume normal work.

The orbiter has circled Mars 1,344 times, achieving global coverage and is currently in normal condition. In the follow-up, it will continue to carry out global remote sensing detection, and choose an opportunity to carry out expansion technology experiments to carry out preliminary technical verification for related tasks.

After nearly two years of flight and exploration for the Tianwen-1 mission, the 13 scientific payloads deployed by the rover and orbiter have obtained a total of about 1040GB of raw scientific data. After receiving and processing on the ground, the standard scientific data products formed are submitted to the rover on a monthly basis. A team of scientists has conducted analysis and interpretation, and relevant scientific results have been published in well-known academic journals at home and abroad. These scientific data will be open to scientists around the world at an appropriate time. Scientists around the world are welcome to actively apply for research and jointly promote the cause of human exploration of the universe.

At present, the Tianwen-1 orbiter continues to carry out scientific exploration in the orbit of the remote sensing mission, continues to accumulate first-hand scientific data, and makes China’s contribution to mankind’s in-depth understanding of Mars.
