First images of Chinese rover landing site published

The Chinese space orbital station has captured an image of the landing site of the Zhurong rover.

China’s Zhurong rover landed on Mars more than 25 days ago. China became the second country in history to successfully deliver a mobile planetary automatic station to the Red Planet.

In order to confirm the success of the mission, images of the landing site of the rover were taken from the Chinese orbital station: it is in the photo in the upper right corner. The arrows also show where the rover and the lander from which it descended are located.

Below you can see the place where the detached parachute fell.

The first images from the surface of Mars were taken on May 17. Five days later, the rover began work on the surface of the planet. The entire mission to Mars will take at least three months, during which time the device will look for water and signs of past or present biological life on Mars.
