Prior to this, Wu Yanhua, deputy director of the National Space Administration, mentioned in an interview that my country’s Tianwen-1 has successfully landed on Mars, and a mission has completed “circling, landing, and patrolling”, setting a number of records in my country:
For the first time, the ground fire transfer orbital detector was launched
first interplanetary flight
First soft landing on an exoplanet
For the first time, the inspection and detection of the surface of an exoplanet has been realized
For the first time, the measurement and control communication with a distance of 400 million kilometers is realized
First-hand access to first-hand Mars science data
At the same time, he also revealed: Tianwen-2 is returning samples from asteroids, Tianwen-3 is returning samples from Mars, and Tianwen-4 is going to the Jupiter galaxy, so we call it planetary exploration (engineering).
According to reports, my country’s planetary exploration project is planned to be completed in the next 10 to 15 years.
In addition, my country is still carrying out the demonstration of medium and long-term development strategic planning, such as the detection of the edge of the solar system and so on. For deeper and farther space, multi-type launch vehicles, including heavy rockets, are also in the development stage and are expected to complete their maiden flight in the next few years.
