Beijing – China’s Mars rover Zhurong has accomplished its exploration and detection tasks as planned. By August 15, Zhurong had worked on the surface of Mars for 90 Martian days, or about 92 days on Earth, with all scientific payloads having started to work on detection tasks, the Xinhua news agency quoted the China National Space Administration (CNSA) as saying. The CNSA added that the rover will continue to move to the boundary zone between the ancient sea and the ancient land in the southern part of Utopia Planitia, and will carry out additional tasks. China is now the second country, after the US, to operate a rover on the Red planet.
