China has joined America to become the third country land on the surface of Mars and also they are the second country in human history to have safely landed and have a rover roaming about on the surface of Mars on his first attempt. 

The Tianwen-1 spacecraft From which the shielded capsule containing the Mars rover will be launched has been orbiting Mars since February. And Has finally deployed the landing vehicle containing the rover to the surface of Mars and the landing has been complete and has been confirmed by Chinese state Media.

The Mars Rover was confirmed to have touched down in Utopia Planitia which is a very large impact crater on Mars at 5:38 p.m. PT on Friday. However despite how hot is the surface of Mars is under the ground of Utopia Planitia, It is believed that there is an underground Cache of ice that may have once been covered by an ocean. This is what has always baffled scientists and is the mission of the rover to explore the entire planet.

This exploration mission will last for about 3 months while the Rover collates data. perform surveys to study Mars’s climate and geology and any sign of life.
