MADRID, 26 (EUROPA PRESS)
The CNSA, China’s space agency, has published two lateral images of Mars in the southern and northern hemispheres taken by its Tianwen-1 mission, which orbits the Red Planet.
In the image, Mars has a “crescent” shape with a light surface texture. The Tianwen-1 probe flew at a distance of 11,000 kilometers from Mars and used a medium resolution camera to take a panoramic view of the Red Planet, reports the CNSA.
The Tianwen-1 probe has been in Martian orbit for a month. You have turned on the high resolution camera, medium resolution camera, mineral spectrometer, Mars energy particle analyzer, ion and neutral particle analyzer, magnetometer and other charges, to carry out exploration of Mars and obtain data scientists.
In addition, it is planned to send a lander with a rover to the surface of the planet throughout the month of May.
