Recent from CGTN:
2020 is an optimal year for #Mars missions, given the close distance between Earth and Mars. On July 23, the China National Space Administration launched its Tianwen-1, or “Questions to Heaven,” which carries the country’s very first Mars rover and orbiter. It should arrive in orbit around the Red Planet in February. If the mission is successful, China will join the U.S. and become just the second country to operate a rover on the Red Planet. Last week, the #UAE launched its Hope satellite toward Mars. And the U.S. space agency also aims to dispatch its next-generation rover, Perseverance. Why are humans going to Mars? And what is #China’s Mars mission all about? Will it signal a space race with the U.S.?
