On 9 October, at 23:00 BJT, Tianwen 1 successfully conducted a deep-space maneuver after its main engine worked for over 480 seconds. The maneuver took place 29.4 million km from Earth, aiming to help the probe achieve a sound rendezvous with Mars. The planetary probe will travel along the Earth-Mars transfer orbit for about 4 more months and complete 2 or 3 mid-course orbital corrections.
