After dropping the camera, Zhurong moved back toward the platform. The process was recorded by the camera, which transmitted the video and pictures to the rover via radio signals.

The backdrop in these photos is the reddish, barren Martian surface, on which Tianwen 1's landing capsule touched down on May 15 in the southern part of the Utopia Planitia, a large lava plain within the largest known impact basin in the solar system.

The pictures were released at a ceremony held by the space administration at its Beijing headquarters.

Zhang Kejian, director of the administration, said at the ceremony that China will share the scientific findings from its space missions with other nations to benefit all people around the world.
