China's Zhurong rover switches to dormant mode in severe Martian dust storm

https://www.marsdaily.com/reports/China … m_999.html

Mars rover Zhurong has been switched to dormant mode while waiting out a dust storm on the surface of the planet, the China National Space Administration said on Friday.

The latest images taken by cameras onboard China's Tianwen-1 Mars orbiter show a dust storm passing over the patrol area of Zhurong. Scientists compared them with photos taken in the last two months and analyzed recent power data of the rover's solar wings, which indicated Zhurong now braving an intense Martian dust storm.

Scientists will continue to use the Tianwen-1 orbiter to monitor the weather on Mars' southern hemisphere.

Re: China's space probe sends back its first image of Mars

China's Mars probe completes mission, the national space agency is sharing the data they collected from Mars with global scientists.

https://news.cgtn.com/news/2022-06-29/C … index.html

Mars probe transmitted about 1,040 gigabytes of raw data back to Earth. The data was then processed by scientists, some of which has been published in scientific journals.
data will eventually be released for scientists around the world, said the CNSA, which has been gathering applications.

Re: China's space probe sends back its first image of Mars

China's Mars rover reveals more of subsurface
https://www.marsdaily.com/reports/China … e_999.html

What does the subsurface of Mars' northern lowlands have in common with a French mille crepe cake? They both consist of a number of layers, according to the latest findings by China's Zhurong Mars rover published in the journal Nature on Monday.

The discovery showed that the evolution of the Martian surface environment is more varied and complex than previously anticipated, experts said. Last year, the Zhurong rover landed in Utopia Planitia, a large plain that scientists suspect was once a massive ancient ocean.

Although the rover didn't detect liquid water up to 80 meters underground, the subsurface layer from 30 to 80 meters may be shaped by major flooding that took place around 3.2 to 3.5 billion years ago, said Chen Ling, a researcher at the Institute of Geology and Geophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

For the layer between 10 and 30 meters underground, the strata were likely sculpted by smaller floods, meteorite impacts or long-term weathering during the Middle to Late Amazonian periods about 1.6 billion years ago, she said.

"What does Mars' underground look like, how did it evolve and whether there are water or ice buried deep under the Martian surface are very important scientific questions that have garnered a lot of attention," she said. "The Zhurong rover may provide valuable insights into these key questions."
