another Chinese Journal of Space Science paper on the scientific objectives of YH-1, in English, for once... A revisit of the phobos events

I'm one of the most durable and fervent advocates of space exploration, but my take is that we could do it robotically at far less cost and far greater quantity and quality of results.

two fantastic pdfs found on the Novosti Kosmonavtiki forum and presented at the 7th UK - China Workshop on Space Science and Technology
Chinese Mars Exploration Mission Analysis
Concept Research of Mars Penetrator
I just love the Yinghuo with penetrators proposal, and the small lander has that ExoMars-esque look...

a Chinese Journal of Space Sciences paper on Mars airplanes (which are completely out of fashion in the US and Europe) Mission Planning and Modeling Analysis for Unmanned Aerial Exploration Vehicle on Mars

Do I see aerobreaking down the orbit? It would help probe the atmosphere. (my translator isn't clear on this)

by the way, the probe and its mission look remarkably similar to those in this presentation I posted one year ago. the launch date appears to have slipped to 2016 and 2018. I guess the mission is still in the project phase and has not yet received the governmental go-ahead

I have recently seen rumors that a 2018 Chinese Mars mission has recently passed critical reviews - flying an orbiter and a rover (no, I am not kidding! pancam.gif wheel.gif ) at the same time! That's with the ExoMars rover landing at the same window and MAX-C take 2 coming only 2 years later......

I have the links for the source of rumors here.

The two flat circular solar panels (reminiscent of Phoenix?) make it ideal for serving drinks at conferences!

I was wondering, reading Scott's analysis and looking at the photos, whether this prototype Mars rover is meant to look like an actual thing that would get sent to Mars, or whether it's more akin to JPL's FIDO rovers, which was a rover explicitly designed for working on Earth to test systems being developed as prototypes for future Mars systems.

It seems kinda streamlined, for some odd reason. Maybe it's a more efficient use of volume for encapsulation or something.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

ESA too was showing a streamlined ExoMars rover at one time
