China’s Mars Rover Zhurong Has Completed Its Primary Mission, Reaches New Milestone

Zhurong is the name given to the Chinese Space Agency’s Mars rover mission, and after landing in May it’s spent over 90 days traversing the surface of Utopia Planitia, looking for evidence that this might be an ancient sea bed. As China’s first successful attempt to land on Mars a great deal of attention has been given to the state of the lander, parachute and aeroshell, so we’ve had some fine images of those. However in general the amount of data released so far remains quite small and we expect more as scientists work on the mission.
