China’s Zhurong Rover landed on the surface of the Red planet over the weekend, marking a new milestone towards upheaving the scope of space agency’s aspiration to dominate. But the visuals haven’t been transcribed yet, and we might have to anxiously await the arrival of images reiterating the updates of China’s mission on Mars.
The China National Space Administration issued a statement on Monday, confirming the safe and secure landing. Surprisingly the announcement was made in English. It was the first time in the history of astronomy that China has tried to reach out to the surroundings of another planet. We might think that the mission is identical to NASA’S missions, but that generally is not the case here.
There’s no such deluded reason to fret over the condition of the Rover yet. Communications between the Red Planet and Earth can get protracted and be more time-consuming than previously anticipated. China’s Tianwen-1 spacecraft is on the edge of orbit around the planet and will be enacted as the relay of the Rover. The landing is rendering China’s space cap to surging heights following its missions to the moon and rocking surfaces that revolve in and around the Earth’s atmosphere.
