China has taken a major step forward in its interplanleral exploration plans. According to The Guardian news site, he reported that the country had sent the first Mars photo of the Tianwen-1 endody and captured a snapshot in black and white from about 1.4 million miles away.
According to science commentators, the image obtained by Tianwen-1 cannot be compared with more detailed pictures of other explorers. What’s important here is proof that China can send a spacecraft to Mars.
In addition, let’s add that the Sonda will orbit Mars on February 10, and the rover will land in Utopia’s impact basin in May.
As is known, China, with the help of Russia in 2011, tried to conduct a Mars mission. However, this work ended in failure at launch. At the same time, it is not easy for anyone to go to the Red Planet. So much so that other countries and organizations such as ESA, Russia, the United States routinely struggle to make this journey, but their tasks, which often fail, are evident.
It is also thought that the successful mobile landing of Tianwen-1 will be highly supportive of China as it begins other ambitious projects, including placing a new space station in orbit by 2022.
Let’s also add that this important milestone achieved by China is the turning point for the country’s space program.
Finally, china’s progress will be an effective symbolic foil for NASA’s Perseverance mission and will support China to conduct further research.
