While Perseverance heads south to examine the bottom of the Jezero crater in search of signs of ancient microbial life, the Chinese presented the first recordings made by Zhurong.
He unveiled the first recordings made by Chinese marching Zhurong at the Chinese National Space Agency at a Friday event in Beijing. A 360-degree panoramic image captured by the Martian’s off-road navigation camera before the rover left the landing platform shows that the landing site and the relatively smooth surface of Mars show that the Global Times reports. Named after one of the ancient fire gods of Chinese mythology, the Zhurong rover is 1.85 meters high and weighs 240 kilograms. The Martian reached the surface of the red planet on May 22 and then began reconnaissance. With the spacecraft, it will complete China’s first own Mars mission. Zhurong has been working on a planet called Utopia Planitia for three Earth months – 90 Martian days. It examines the atmosphere and soil of Mars, takes pictures, and maps the area. The vehicle will be controlled from Tienven-1, which is in contact with Earth. Meanwhile, he began his first series of scientific research on Mars with Perseverance. A NASA marcher is heading south to examine the bottom of the Lake Crater in search of signs of ancient microbial life. In the first few weeks, the team leading the mission will direct the rover to a low-lying, viewable location from where it can observe the oldest geological formations in the crater, and then launch an automated navigation and sampling system, NASA said. Perseverance completed the commissioning phase by June 1, tested its oxygen-generating instrument called MOXIE and conducted technology-testing flights on the Ingenuity helicopter. MOXIE produced 5 grams of pure oxygen from carbon dioxide in the atmosphere of Mars, which would be enough for 10 minutes for an astronaut to breathe. Perseverance’s cameras captured more than 75,000 images, and its microphones recorded Mars sounds for the first time. The mission’s scientific mission is to study the Jezero Crater so scientists can understand the geology and habitability of the region in the past, and to research signs of ancient, microscopic life. Researchers will identify and collect the most impressive rock and sediment samples, and future missions may bring them to Earth for more in-depth study. Perseverance will also perform measurements and tests to help with future exploration of Mars by humans and robots.

Space tourist ticket in advance
A Russian subsidiary of Roscosmos, Glavcosmos, would sell seats directly to Soyuz spacecraft to the International Space Station (ISS). The offer is accompanied by basic information and a revival of the traditions of Russian spaceflight, but it is not about how much tickets are sold for. So those who are seriously interested should contact the company to find out even more about the details of their hopeful space trip. Flying space tourists with Russian Soyuz spacecraft to the International Space Station is nothing new. The first such passenger was Dennis Tito, an American millionaire in April-May 2001. It is well known that Charles Simonyi also flew, uniquely twice, in 2007 and 2009.
