The US Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA has released an impressive photo of China’s first rover on the Red Planet, taken from space.

The photo of the Zhuzhong rover and the landing platform was taken by the multifunctional automatic interplanetary station MRO (Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter) on June 6, 2021.

Members of the team in charge of the HiRISE camera at the station noted in the photo description:

One can clearly see the object, which we interpret as the lander, surrounded by the trail of the explosion, and the rover itself a little further south, after it descended from the lander. ”

It is also noted that the surrounding area is extremely typical of the southern part of the Utopia Plain – flat and mostly free of boulders.

The image also shows the equipment that helped Zhurong and the lander safely reach the surface of Mars. The heat shield, rear hull and parachute can be seen scattered some distance from the rover and lander.

Today, the Chinese space agency CNSA released the first scientific images from the Zhuzhong rover, including a hilarious “group selfie.”

Recall that on May 15, 2021, at 1 am Beijing time, the Tianwen-1 probe entered Mars orbit, and already at 7:18 am the descent module with the Zhurong rover successfully landed on the planet’s surface on the Utopia plain.
