Tuesday China shows Mars orbiter, lander and rover
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. (Photo 1)
