China’s Zhurong rover lands on Mars

China’s Zhurong rover has landed on March. The Global Times on its website  /www.globaltimes.cn reported that Tianwen-1, China’s first interplanetary expedition, has spectacularly conquered a new major milestone, with its lander-rover combination successfully soft-landing at the planned site in the southern part of a vast plain known as Utopia Planitia on Mars. Global Times cited updates from China National Space Administration (CNSA) as it’s source of information 

It makes China the first country to carry out an orbiting, landing and roving operation during its first mission to Mars.
