Chinanews.com, Beijing, June 11 (Guo Chaokai) Tianwen has a long way to explore the fire, and the ardent search will finally come true.
On June 11, the first batch of scientific images of the Tianwen-1 probe landing on Mars was released, marking the complete success of my country's first Mars exploration mission.
On the afternoon of the 11th, as the chief research and development unit of the Tianwen-1 Mars probe, the Fifth Academy of Aerospace Science and Technology Group held a welcome event to welcome the triumphant victory of the Tianwen-1 Mars exploration mission test team.
At 13 o'clock in the afternoon of the same day, the 21-gun salute sounded and the welcoming ceremony officially began.
The dragon dance performance, which is rich in traditional Chinese culture, ignited the enthusiasm of the audience.
Afterwards, under the leadership of the team flag, representatives of the test team marched into the square with high and powerful steps.

The sound of gongs and drums, cheers, and slogans are intertwined to form a "symphony" celebrating success.
The leaders of the Fifth Academy presented the flowers in their hands to the experimental team members and extended their warm congratulations.
Leaders at all levels and test team members took a group photo to witness this glorious moment together.
The Tianwen-1 probe was successfully launched on July 23, 2020. After successfully orbiting Mars on February 10, 2021, it has successively completed key flight control tasks such as pre-detection of the landing zone, orbit maintenance, and self-checking.
On May 15, 2021, the Tianwen-1 probe successfully landed on Mars, achieving my country's first extraterrestrial planet landing.
On May 22, the Zhurong rover safely drove away from the landing platform, reached the surface of Mars, and began to patrol and explore.
The Tianwen-1 mission has broken through key technologies such as the second cosmic speed launch, interplanetary flight, measurement and control communications, and soft landing on extraterrestrial planets. It is another significant milestone in the development of China's aerospace industry.
The relevant person in charge of the Fifth Academy stated that my country's first Mars exploration mission was formally approved in 2016, and it is planned to realize Mars orbit, land and patrol through a mission.
Since the establishment of the project, as the chief research and development unit of the Tianwen-1 Mars probe, the Fifth Academy has completed this mission with high aerospace development capabilities and scientific research organization capabilities with high quality, high efficiency and high efficiency, which demonstrates the Fifth Academy as a spaceflight mission. The strong strength of the career "national team" is a vivid manifestation of China Aerospace's achievement of high-level scientific and technological self-reliance.
