The Chinese have (finally ...) landed on the planet Mars!

That's the good news.

The "bad" news is that, after months of anticipatory speculation as to what color the Chinese would "reveal" about the current Martian skies, in their first horizon color images, they've ONLY given us----

Black and white!

The mighty "People's Republic of China" have "punted" on the most blatant aspect of the current atmosphere of Mars ....


Also tonight: a surprising bit of Chinese Tienwen-1 data from orbit that, in fact, not only strongly implies (as our own studies have done) that Mars' current atmosphere is MUCH, MUCH denser than NASA has been telling us for decades ... but a couple of new Chinese details on the ground, that connect directly to our previously discussed, astonishing discovery of a "Giza 2 on Mars ..." at the southern end of the Perseverance exploration site, Jezero Crater -- thousands of miles from the location of the Chinese robotic landing.

Join us -- as we welcome back members of the Enterprise Mission's venerable "imaging team," as well as a few "surprise guests," to grapple with--

"All things Chinese ... on Mars."
