By ZHAO LEI | China Daily Global | Updated: 2019-12-03 00:00

China has been moving steadily toward its goal of fulfilling the country's first Mars mission in the coming two years, with Chinese scientists looking to send its astronauts to the red planet.

Last week, the nation's space authority carried out a key experiment for the coming Mars mission in Hebei province's Huailai area, in front of dozens of foreign diplomats and journalists.

The experiment, which aimed at verifying the design and capability of the lander of China's robotic Mars probe, was the first of its kind in the country, according to Zhang Kejian, the director of the China National Space Administration. Zhang oversaw the test.
