The orbiter and lander both display small Chinese flags while the lander has outlines of the mascots for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics and Paralympics.
It landed safely because its built-in system to provide an extra margin for stability “came to the rescue.”
China has come a long way in its race to catch up with the US and Russia, who have decades of experience in space exploration.
China is planning a single, 10-year mission to collect a sample from an asteroid and pass by a comet.
Tianwen-1 will use a laser range finder to work out where it is relative to Martian terrain and microwave sensor to determine its speed more accurately.
This type of reconnaissance will prove useful to human missions, by scoping out the best paths for them and reaching locations that aren't accessible.
The helicopter on this third flight covered 50 meters of distance, reaching the speed of two meters per second.
This flight lasted 51.9 seconds with the helicopter climbing five meters and also moved sideways.
Ingenuity doesn’t have the rear rotor blades and commands cannot be given in real-time.
Balaram had said if the Mars helicopter was successful, it would open up a whole new dimension of exploring Mars.
Perseverance rover sent a video showing the chopper hovering three meters for 10 seconds, then touching back down.
The Ingenuity helicopter is only 1.8 kg in weight can be seen at a distance of four metres from the rover in the selfie
Flight is a true challenge on Mar because the air is so thin and it has to spin its rotor blades much faster than it does on Earth
The first flight will see it climbing to a height of three meters, hover there for 30 seconds and then descend.
Ingenuity will take high-resolution photography as it flies up to five times with gradual difficulty over the month.
A successful take-off and hover attempt on its first flight will accomplish 90 percent of the project's key goals, a mission expert said.
Since the first space missions, it's been clear that exposure to “microgravity” leads to dramatic changes in the human body.
Martian meteorites also hold clues about how people may one day be able to survive on the planet.
The line is from President Theodore Roosevelt and is also a mantra at JPL that adorns many of the centre’s walls.
A successful bid to land Tianwen-1 would make China only the second country after the US to place a spacecraft on Mars.
