Chinese rover Juzhung has carried out its research and detection tasks according to the planned plan, the Chinese National Space Administration (CNSA) announced.

As the Chinese Media Group (CMG) reported today, the rover spent 90 Martian days on the surface of Mars by 15 August, ie about 92 days on Earth, which crossed 889 meters on the surface of the red planet.

All of the devices the rover is carrying have begun work on tracking tasks and have so far collected about ten gigabytes of raw data, the CNSA said.

The jungle is now working stably and is in good condition with enough energy.

CNSA added that the rover will continue to move along the border area between the old sea and the old continent in the southern part of the Utopia Planitia ice area, where it will perform additional tasks.

According to the CNSA, during his research, Juzhung worked with a seven-day cycle. Along the way, his navigation camera collected topographic data to support rover planning and target selection.

Juzhung’s underground reconnaissance radar collected data on the layered structure below the surface of Mars, which helps to analyze the structure of the shallow surface and investigate the possibility of groundwater and ice.

The Chinese spacecraft Tienwen-1 for the exploration of Mars, which consists of orbits, landers and robbers, was launched on July 23, 2020, CMG added.
