China's Tianwen-1 probe has successfully completed all of its primary missions on the Red Planet, having completed imaging the entire surface of Mars.

After two years of operation and exploration of the planet by Mars orbiter Tianwen-1, 13 scientific payloads installed on the probe, 1040 They have recorded gigabytes of original scientific data. After being processed by the ground team, these data form standard scientific results and are presented monthly to scientific research teams for further analysis and studies so that related scientific achievements are published in prestigious academic journals.

According to the department China National Space Agency scientific data will be available to scientists around the world in due time, and all researchers have the opportunity to apply for data research to have a share in the results of Tianwen-1 probe exploration.

Since its successful launch on July 23, 2020 (2 August 2019), this probe traveled 475 million kilometers in deep space in 202 days and finally entered the orbit of Mars on February 10, 2021 (22 February 2019).

After a three-month survey of the intended landing areas, the Tianwen-1 lander landed on the surface of Mars on May 15, 2021 (May 25, 1400), and then the "Zhurong" rover went on the Martian soil for its exploration mission. to start on May 22, 2021 (June 1, 1400).

It was on August 15, 2021 (August 24, 1400) that this Mars rover planned scientific exploration tasks. He completed his mission in 90 days on Mars. However, Gerong continued his exploration missions and walked a total of 1,921.5 meters on the surface of Mars.

This rover on May 18 (28 May) due to extreme cold and a severe sand and dust storm in In the face of the harsh Martian winter, the landing zone entered the shutdown mode. But it is expected that in December 2022, when the spring season reaches the Gerong landing area, the environmental conditions will be better and the probe operations will resume again. It has turned and managed to cover the world of the red planet. The probe will continue its remote sensing and select opportunities to conduct newer technical experiments that will lay the groundwork for future related activities.

The China National Space Administration also cooperates with space agencies and communities. It continues the science of other countries and while sharing data from the Mars orbiter, it also cooperates with NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) in the field of meteor strike warning. Also, the Jurong Mars rover conducted a data relay radio experiment with the European Space Agency's Mars Express orbiter last year.

In addition, the China National Space Administration cooperated with observatories in countries including Russia, Germany, Italy, Australia and South Africa. For observation and scientific research in various scientific fields such as the solar wind, he has cooperated with the Tianwen-1 orbiter and Mars Express. According to CNSA, such collaborations have enriched human knowledge and had positive results for building a society with a shared scientific future. CNSA/Sina Weibo
