The Chinese space agency also has it Two short video clips Chest. They explain how a file The landing capsule separates the rover from the orbiter Tianwen-1.
Very comparable Data transfer speed From NASA – Perseverance Rovers It took Zhurong a little longer to send the first pictures after landing on May 15. The Chinese rover transmits a radio signal to The X frequency range is directly on the groundWhich, however, is time consuming. To transfer big picture data, it is first sent to a file Orbit Tianwen-1 Forwarded to them in UHF frequency range It travels faster.
Data transfer speed
To make the landing, Tianwen-1 was in an elliptical orbit. This has now been converted to a faster circular path. The Chinese Space Agency wrote that data could be transferred more quickly in the future On Twitter.
