Chinese scientists hold out hope for the silent Zhurong Mars rover

China’s Mars rover may be stuck, but scientists using data from the mission still hope the vehicle can reactivate and explore again.

Zhurong, which is part of China Tianwen 1 Mars mission, landed in Utopia Planitia in May 2021. The rover went into hibernation in May 2022, effectively allowing it to hibernate during winter in the planet’s northern hemisphere.
