my country's first Mars exploration mission released a batch of scientific research results

IT House reported on September 18, according to the National Space Administration's Lunar Exploration and Aerospace Engineering Center, as of September 15, 2022, the Tianwen-1 orbiter has been in orbit for more than 780 days, and the Mars rover has traveled a total of 1921 meters. Complete the established scientific exploration tasks and obtain 1480GB of original scientific exploration data. The scientific research team has obtained rich scientific results through the research on the first-hand scientific data obtained independently by my country. Through camera images and spectral data, water-bearing minerals were found in plate-like hard-shell rocks near the landing area, proving that there has been a large amount of liquid water activity in the landing area since 1 billion years ago (late Amazonian period). The results have been published in authoritative academic journals such as "Nature Astronomy", "Nature Geoscience", "Science Advances" and "Science in China". IT House learned that the Tianwen-1 mission was successfully launched on July 23, 2020. After a deep space flight of 475 million kilometers for 202 days, the probe rendezvoused with Mars on February 10, 2021, successfully implemented capture braking and entered orbit around Mars. After 3 months of detailed inspection of the pre-selected landing area, the Mars landing was successfully carried out on May 15, 2021. On May 22, the "Zhurong" rover successfully landed on the surface of Mars and began to patrol and explore.
