No Category 22 August 2021 Mars Planet 0
China’s Zhurong rover has completed its primary three-month-long expedition on Mars but is set to continue exploring the Red Planet. Zhurong completed its 90-sol mission in Mars’ Utopia Planitia on Aug. Zhurong will continue to cross this area, which is thought to be below the shoreline of an ancient ocean in southern Utopia Planitia. CNSA says Zhurong’s six scientific instruments are working well and that the rover has, with the help of the Tianwen 1 orbiter acting as a relay, sent back 10 gigabytes of raw science data.
