China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

China un­veiled the de­sign of the probe that it will land on Mars around 2020.

The probe will con­sist of three parts — the or­biter, the lan­der and the rover, ac­cord­ing to de­sign il­lus­tra­tions re­leased by the China Na­tional Space Ad­min­is­tra­tion. The rover will have six wheels and four so­lar pan­els.

The de­sign of the probe was un­veiled hours af­ter China an­nounced that one of its un­manned sub­mersibles had dived to a depth of 10,767 me­ters, set­ting a na­tional record, the Chi­nese Academy of Sci­ences said.
