Hong Kong, May 21 (Xinhua) - Researchers from the Polytechnic University of Hong Kong (Polyu), who developed the Mars Landing Surveillance Chamber (Mette Chamber) and He evaluated the terrain of the landing area in Mars, they were one of the collaborators of the first Mars probe in the country.

The Lander and Rover of the Tianwen-1 mission from China landed on Mars on May 15. It was the first time that China has landed a probe on a planet other than Earth.

Tianwen-1, consisting of an Orbiter, a Lander and a Rover, was launched from the Wencang Spacecraft launch site on the coast of Hainan Province From the island of Southern China, on July 23, 2020. It was the first step in China's planetary exploration of the solar system, with the aim of completing the orrid, landing and wagons on the red planet. On a mission.

Located on the upper surface of the MARS Lander platform, the Mars C AMRA oversees the landing status, the surrounding environment and the movements of the rover with respect to the deployment and the state of the solar panels and antennas. The information is critical for the successful movement of the Mars Rover on the surface of Mars, according to Polyu.

Led by Yung Kai-Leung, Polyu Professor in Precision Engineering, the research team completed and delivered the MARS camera with the corresponding spatial rating experiments in less than three years.

The camera Mars, which weighs only about 390 grams, has a Shard Shell to withstand extreme temperature differences and operate at extremely low temperatures on the Mars surface.

Yung said a press conference on Friday that to take Ultratava images and movies, the MARS camera must be light, with wide-angle shots and deformation of controllable images. At the same time, it should be able to withstand a great force of impact and overcome the challenges presented by radiation and mechanical vibration, and maintain a very high stability.

Guest by China Academy of Space Technology, Wu Bo, Professor of the Department of Land Topography and Geo-Informática de Polyu, he addressed his team to analyze and evaluate Mars worldwide, and will analyze three candidate landing areas, including Utopia Planitia where Tianwen-1 landed.

Based on detailed terrain and topography measurements, the team successfully searched for several possible landing sites for the Tianwen-1 management team to choose from.

Secretary of Innovation and Technology of the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong The Alfred Sit-Hang Government said that Polyu was once again invited to participate in the important spatial mission of the country, which fully demonstrated the Strengt of Hong Kong. H In scientific research and that Hong Kong is an important force in national science and the development of technology.

Polyu has been contributing to the space projects of the nation since 2010. As part of the Nation's Lunar Exploration Program, Yung collaborated with the Academy of China Space Technology To Develop a "System of Camera Points" for the Chang'e-3 Lunar Probe in 2013 and the Chang'e-4 probe, which made a historical landing on the Moon Far.
