The 1.85-meter-high and 240-pound craft arrived at the Red Planet on May 22.

The first recordings made by Chinese passer-by Zhou Cong-Mars were unveiled at the China National Space Agency at an event Friday in Beijing. The 360-degree panoramic image taken by the off-road navigation camera orbiting Mars before the rover leaves the landing platform shows that the Earth is flat at the landing site. On the horizon appears the horizon of Mars.

The Terrain Navigation Camera also captured an image of the surface of the Red Planet. Stones of different sizes can be seen on the ground. Mars passers-by also photographed the landing pad from a distance of about 6 metres:

Named after one of the ancient deities of fire in Chinese mythology, the Chungjong probe has a height of 1.85 meters and weighs 240 kilograms. The Mars orbiter reached the surface of the red planet on May 22, and then began to explore the planet.

The Tienven-1 spacecraft has reached the Red Planet after a ten-month journey, where the spacecraft’s lander module made a successful landing on May 15. With the spacecraft, you will complete China’s first mission to Mars.

Chu-zung has been working on a planet called Utopia Planitia for three months on Earth (90 solos, or Mars days). The vehicle will be controlled from Tienven-1, which is in contact with the ground. The robotic vehicle is examining the atmosphere and soil of Mars, taking pictures, and mapping the area.
