China’s Jurong rover launched on the surface of Mars
China’s first Mars rover has begun operating on the planet’s surface.
China’s National Space Administration said last week that the Jurong rover had successfully launched to Mars. This rover went to Utopia Planetia.
China says it has launched its mobile mission. Jurong will test the soil of Mars using its high-resolution terrain camera and other equipment.
This solar powered rover will also check if there is water or snow below the surface. Apart from China, only the United States has robots on the surface of Mars.
