The rover landed on the surface of Mars on May 15. On May 22, Zhurong descended from the landing platform and began research. It has already taken many photographs and samples of the Martian atmosphere. It is assumed that the rover will operate for three months.
The main goal of the mission is to detect possible signs of life on Mars, as well as to help investigate the question of future changes of these conditions. This will help scientists understand whether Mars will become suitable for human life.
