The Chinese rovers Zhu Rong, the god of Mars, will search for traces of life on Mars Utopia, “The Plain of Heaven.” Will you be close to perseverance?
Otherwise it is impossible. The Chinese Space Agency rover that is about to take over Mars is called “Zhu Rong”, which means “God of Fire”. Not so, because in ancient Chinese myths, the red planet is called Mars, which means Mars.
Usually, reality makes novel creation easy. If we like something very much, it is Chinese stories and North American movies. It turns out that we currently have a NASA rover named “Perseverance” who is exploring Martian craters. Soon, a Chinese ship will land on this rocky planet. Although his wanderers seemed to arrive safely, they were still named after the god of fire Zhu Rong.
Both rover vehicles are carrying the most advanced technology and equipment that mankind has developed, and both will look for biological footprints, biomarkers and remnants of life on Mars.
The battle of two gods
When revealing the name chosen for the rover, Wu Yanhua, deputy government secretary, said: “The first rover in China named after Vulcan is to ignite the flame of China’s planetary exploration.”
This Chinese organization is reluctant to share information, which is also related to the exploration of the Martians. But it announced that Zhu Rong would land on Mars in May, and we roughly know where it is.If all goes well, God of Fire Mars will land in the northern hemisphere.
God Zhu R is a resident of a palace on the top of Kunlun Mountain. Zhu R is a god who teaches humans to use fire.Since there is no god without a great enemy, he is Gong Gong,Water God. The gongs moved by jealousy flooded Zhu R’s palace, which was filled with four lakes and five seas, extinguishing the original fire. The world became dark. So Zhu R rode a fire dragon and started a battle with gongs and gongs.
Despite its belligerent origins, Chinese rovers claimed that it reached Mars peacefully. “Literally, Zhu (wishes in Chinese) expressed his best wishes for mankind to explore the universe. Wu Ronghua explained: “Rong (in Chinese for integration and cooperation) reflects China’s commitment to peaceful use of space and building a common future for mankind. The vision of the community. “
Chinese spacecraft orbiting Mars
China launched the “Tianjin 1” on July 23, 2020. This is a spacecraft composed of an orbiter, a lander and the wanderer Zhu R who just woke up. The spacecraft entered the parking orbit of Mars after an orbital maneuver on February 24.
The most challenging part of the mission will be the soft landing in May, which is an autonomous process of the detection process and will last 7 to 8 minutes. Just as we have experienced the horror of NASA’s persistent flight on Mars for 10 minutes, China will experience its greatest crisis 7 minutes when the spacecraft touches the Martian continent.
The competent authority explained that the probe will use its aerodynamic shape, parachutes and retro rockets to slow down and cushion the landing of the legs.
Where will the Chinese Wanderers fall
Although no very precise information was given, Chinese space scientists and engineers chose a relatively flat area north of the Red Planet as a possible landing zone, which is close to the Great Plains Utopia Planitia. It is a vast plain in the northern hemisphere of Mars.
The Utopia Planitia (Paradise of Heaven, “Plain Nowhere”) is a large plain within Utopia. Utopia is recognized as the largest impact basin in Mars and the solar system, with an estimated diameter of 3,300 kilometers.
How far is it from perseverance?
The fate of the U.S. Garrison Mission is That lake, Also located in the crater of the northern hemisphere of the earth. But we already know that Mars is huge and far away, it is Martian.
The Utopia Planitia is huge, about 3,300 kilometers, and the diameter of the Jericho crater is about 49 kilometers. Therefore, the distance will be almost a world, and the distance will be greater for machines that can only travel a few kilometers through the rocky and uneven terrain of Mars.
Chinese ship will visit Star Trek shipyard
Star Trek’s Enterprise-D was built at the Utopia Planitia shipyard
In the fictional series of “Star Trek”, the utopia Planitia is the base, shipbuilding and repair shipyard of the Star Fleet. On the surface and orbit of the earth. A Galaxy-class spacecraft such as USS Enterprise-D (NCC1701) was built and assigned to the Utopia Planitia base. The shipyard appears in the plot of the Voyager series “Relativity”.
The location that NASA’s rover persevered to track. Jezero is an impact crater about 35 kilometers in diameter, located in the northern hemisphere of the Red Planet. It houses the geological relics of the ancient lake bed formed about 4 billion years ago. It is believed that there is a lake in it. Perseverance moves at 4.2 cm/sec and 152 m/h. In the first two weeks after landing, it traveled a total of 6.4 meters in 33 minutes. They are not vehicles that can travel long distances.
The meeting between Perseverance and Zhu Rong will not be held unless they both have problems, and now it is their turn to visit the Utopia Planitia shipyard.
