Update:

Having arrived and orbited Mars for three months now, the mythological God of Fire, Zhurong Mars rover/lander, will detach from Tianwen-1 orbiter spacecraft and attempt to land on the Martian surface. Perhaps very soon. Wishing CNSA the best of luck in this nerve-racking moment of truth "seven minutes of terror" as NASA would call it.
