Chinese rover took a selfie on Mars

The Chinese device sent scientists several images from Mars. There are selfies among them.

The Chinese Mars rover Zhurong has sent a batch of new images from Mars to Earth. The robot landed on the planet in May, set up a wireless camera there, and rolled back a short distance to take a picture.

To the right of Zhurong is a rocket-powered platform that allowed the six-wheeled vehicle to land softly on the planet. The photo also shows Chinese flags.

The second image taken by the rover shows the platform of the device. For example, in the photograph, you can distinguish the ramp along which Zhurong descended to the surface, and the footprints left by him in the dust when turning.

The third image shows a view of the horizon from the landing site. This region is called Utopia Planitia, a vast area in the northern hemisphere of Mars. All images were released by the Chinese space agency at a ceremony celebrating the success of the rover’s mission.
