Chinese probe reaches Mars surface

The Tianwen-1 spacecraft took almost seven months to reach Mars.

The Xinhua News Agency reported that a Chinese spacecraft successfully delivered a research rover to the surface of Mars.

The launch of the interplanetary station Tianwen-1 was made on July 23, 2020. The spacecraft reached Martian orbit in February, after which it spent more than two months studying the surface of the red planet in search of the best place to land. The Zhurong rover is equipped with equipment designed to study the climate, atmosphere, surface, and soil of Mars. It will also look for traces of life on Mars.
