The American rover Perseverance will soon be joined by the Chinese “god of fire”. The first rover from China was named Zhurong



The American Mars rover Perseverance is soon to be joined by its Chinese counterpart. The Tianwen-1 mission was launched last summer, and already in May, the descent module with the rover should detach from the orbital station.

As it turned out, the rover only now, when it is already in the orbit of Mars, received a name. He was named Zhurong (“Chzhurong”) in honor of the fire god from Chinese mythology. The name was chosen from 10 options through an open vote. For China, Zhurong is a very important project, as it is their first rover.

A wide range of various scientific instruments is installed on board the rover, including a magnetic field detector, a multispectral camera, a topographic camera and even a georadar capable of exploring the interior of Mars at a depth of 100 m.
