BEIJING - An uncrewed Chinese spacecraft Tianwen-1 is set to land on Utopia Planitia on Mars between May 15 and May 19 Beijing time, the China National Space Administration said on Friday.

The spacecraft, China's first independent mission to Mars, has functioned normally since its successful launch on July 23, 2020, the CNSA said, adding that the probe entered the Martian orbit on Feb 10, 2021 and has obtained a large amount of scientific data.

Tianwen-1 is designed to complete orbiting, landing and roving in one mission.
