    China on Saturday landed its Mars probe, Tianwen-1, on the red planet, opening a new chapter of China’s deep space exploration and marking another contribution to humanity’s exploration of the universe.

    It is the first time China has landed a probe on a planet other than Earth.

    “Here I declare that China’s first Mars mission, the Tianwen-1, has landed on the red planet with a complete success,” said Zhang Kejian, director of the China National Space Administration.
