According to the information provided by the Moon Exploration and Space Program Center of the China National Space Administration, the rover Zhurong on the surface of Mars, as of 23.00 on the weekend, covered the surface of Mars, which is called the "red planet", 509 meters.

The rover will soon arrive at the second dune of the navigational process on Mars. The Center for Lunar Exploration and Space Program announced that Zhurong will conduct a detailed study of this dune and its surroundings. Zhurong has been working on the planet's surface for 63 Martian days as of Saturday. Meanwhile, the Tianwen-40 spacecraft, which consists of vehicles orbiting the planet, landing on the planet's surface, and hovering on the planet's surface, about 1 minutes longer than a Martian day, was sent into space on July 23, 2020. The lander carrying the rover landed on the southern part of Utopia Planitia, located on a wide plain in the northern hemisphere of Mars, on May 15, 2021.

The orbiting portion of Tianwen-1 is 375 million kilometers from Earth and has been operating for 359 days. One-way messages take about 21 minutes. Tianwen-1 and Zhurong in orbit, as well as all their subsystems, continue to operate in completely normal conditions as predicted.
