Jurong Rover of China successfully landed on the surface of Mars on Saturday morning after seven months of space travel, orbit for three months, and the last hard seven minutes. China's National Space Administration (CNSA) confirmed this on Saturday morning. CNSA reported that the country's first rover, Jurong, has successfully landed on Mars.


China's National Space Administration said Tianwen-1 was launched on July 23, 2020, which included an orbiter, a lander, and a rover Jurong. Has collected a lot of important information since. Only through this, icy utopia can be detected on the planet.



Why was the rover named Jurong?

The rover that the dragon sends to its Mars is named Jurong. Explain that the name Jurong is named after the fire god of China. This rover is in the belly of China's spacecraft 'Tianwen-1'. He was constantly doing surface manning for the rover and lander.

Jurong is a six-wheeled rover. It has reached the Plainsia plane of the Utopia of Mars, which is part of the northern hemisphere of Mars. China has used a protective capsule, a parachute, and a rocket platform in this rover.

According to Chinese media, China's rover landing on Mars is considered a major success. Chinese engineers had been working on it for a long time. The current distance to Mars is 32 million kilometers. This means that it will take 18 minutes for the radio message to reach the Earth. With the US competing with the global technical leadership, this mission is considered to be very important for China.

Let us know that before China, America, Russia, European Union, and India have successfully landed their spacecraft on Mars. India is the first Asian country, which was successful in landing the spacecraft on Mars for the first time in 2014, since then it has been sending important information and pictures of Mars.
