The Chinese are entering Mars orbit (2 photos)

Space stations of earthlings one after another come outinto Mars orbit. Following the Al-Amal interplanetary station (UAE) and the American NASA Perseverance mission, the Chinese expedition Tianwen-1 with a rover on board approached the Red Planet. The Chinese National Space Administration (CNSA) announced the entry of a Chinese spacecraft into Mars orbit.

The journey to Mars orbit took the Chinesea little less than 7 months. Since its launch on July 23, 2020, Tianwen 1 has flown over 475 million kilometers and will now conduct an orbital analysis of the planet's surface before launching a descent vehicle to land on Mars, scheduled for the period from May to June of this year.

The expedition of the Chinese rover will last about90 days and will be aimed at finding traces of organic life on Mars and preparing for the future development of the planet. Recall that the American Perseverance mission plans to land on Mars in Jezero crater on February 18, and the whole process will be broadcast to Earth by the onboard cameras of the device.
