Tianwen-1 above Mars
Tianwen-1 above Mars This image was taken by a small camera that was jettisoned from China's Tianwen-1 spacecraft to photograph the spacecraft in orbit above the Martian north pole. The camera sent the images back to Tianwen-1 via WiFi, and they were then relayed back to Earth. The image gives an unprecedented view of a spacecraft in orbit around another planet. Tianwen-1 has been orbiting the red planet since February 2021 and released the Zhurong rover for its landing in May 2021. CNSA/PEC
