Storyline


China's Mars probe Tianwen-1 is going to execute "brake" in around February 10, that is, it will slow down to be captured by the Mars to become its satellite, according to the China National Space Administration.

Tianwen-1 has the only chance of braking. But because the distance is too far, the time of communication delayed for ten minutes. This has made it impossible to do any real-time control and interference, said Li Zhencai, deputy commander of the Tianwen-1 Mars probe project of China Academy of Space Technology.

"We have solidified the engine startup instruction in the control program and it is, therefore, up to the probe to implement the orders, " Li said.

Li said: "We plan to complete all the commands and the joint exercise with the Beijing Aerospace Control Center before Jan. 24. It is likely that we would conduct the fourth orbital correction during the probe's flight to Mars, with the objective of obtain the relevant orbital parameters at the capture point and ensure accurate operations."

He said: "After Feb. 3, we will all switch to centralize the flight control mode, and up to August, the entire Mars exploration mission will be completed. The designed life span of the Mars rover is 92 days and according to the time it is to land on the Mars, it is the end of August."

China launched the Mars probe on July 23, 2020, designed to complete orbiting, landing and roving in a single mission, thus taking the first step in its planetary exploration of the solar system.
